All Saint’s Pawleys Island Women’s Study Draws Hundreds

Women in the Word, led by Dina Clarke and Beth Sprinkle, is a community Bible Study in Pawleys Island that attracts 250 women weekly, with 60% from outside All Saints Church.  The bible study focuses on helping women grow as disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ and is in its 13th year. Each week women gather to worship the Lord, hear from His word, pray, and meet in small groups to apply what the Lord revealed to our own lives and circumstances. Lives are transformed by His grace as they seek to learn who they are in Christ and how to live it out in the power of the Holy Spirit.

The All Saints women’s teaching ministry has its roots with discipleship teacher The Rev’d Erilynne Barnum. Erilynne began teaching at All Saints in 1997 and her ministry grew from there to a national ministry ( Erilynne also discipled the current teacher Beth Sprinkle and eventually Dina Clarke joined the team.

The two are a dynamic duo with two different teaching styles. The Lord is at work and now the desire for discipleship is so great that mini sessions led by Van Weston have been added to the calendar. Women in the Word seeks to help others know Jesus, to love God’s Word, and to daily live out His truth in their lives.
This ministries’ Scriptural foundation is from the letter to the Colossians 1:28:  “We proclaim him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ.” To listen to their current teaching series on Exodus go to or to their facebook page here.
