History

Organized March 5, 1920 by Isabella Reid Buchanan, also known as Mrs. John C. Buchanan. Buchanan was a pioneer Minnesota club woman and Bible teacher. It was her idea that women might be interested in forming a club that would have as its sole purpose Bible study. The object of the club was "to promote the systematic study of the Bible and the training of Bible teachers. It shall be strictly non-sectarian and no doctrinal discussion shall be allowed. The Bible shall be presented in systematic courses with a study of the historical and geographical setting of each book, with special emphasis on its contents and inspirational literature." The club was affiliated with the Federated Woman's Club. The club sponsored the religious weekday classes for the children in the city of Minneapolis. In the 1960s through the Community Improvement Program, it sponsored classes at Grant Elementary School and was involved with the Community Covenant Church.
