Bible Babes

The Bible Babes began as the Tuesday Morning Bible Study in the late 1970’s. It was originally both men and women who met with the pastor to consult regarding the coming Sunday’s sermon. As time passed and the make-up of the congregation evolved, it became primarily a women’s Bible Study group and chose the name Bible Babes based on a comment in Anita Renfroe’s book The Purse Driven Life, in which she points out that “in every church there is a group of women who know more about the Bible than most Pastors”. Our purpose is to intensely study the Bible.
Bible Babes meet every Tuesday at 9:30 a.m. in the parlor as well as on Zoom. Our class members come from Garland, Mesquite, Rowlett, Rockwall, Royse City, Sunnyvale, Dallas, Cleburne, Lubbock, and New Braunfels. We welcome all ages and are not opposed to men who are interested in Bible Study.
In addition to Tuesday meetings, Bible Babes are active in all phases of service to New World UMC: our members serve on the Administrative Board, Trustees, Finance committee, Family and Community Ministries. We have a special relationship with the New World Day School and support the children and teachers with back-to-school events, teacher appreciation as well as weekly contact with the parents and students to help provide a safe and comfortable environment.
All are welcome to visit and give us a try.

The Pavers are a high energy, small group of 12-14 adults committed to grow spiritually, serve the church faithfully, and provide loving support to each other. We meet once a month at someone’s house for a simple dinner we all provide. We visit and catch up with each other, learn, share, pray, encourage, hug, and laugh abundantly! Pavers come in all shapes, sizes, colors and marital status. They are strong yet can wear down over time and experiences and find themselves in need of repair. We do repair work!
