Women and Their Roles in the Church, addresses the disagreement about the roles women are allowed to serve in at Faith Baptist Church. The problem is that congregants are disagreeing about what roles women are allowed to serve in at the church. This disagreement has led to people leaving the church and finding new churches. The purpose of this study is to develop a small group curriculum to teach leading examples of women from the Bible. The purpose of the study would help expand the participants' understanding of what roles women are allowed to serve in at their local church. Through these lessons, the research participants should have a better understanding of what roles they can and cannot serve at their church. The research method used in this study used various tools to gather data for the purpose of writing this thesis paper. These research tools included focus group discussions, questionnaires, and reflection journals. Future research can use this data or research design to conduct further research or teach their local church congregants about what roles women can serve at their church.
