Women

untitled-253

Welcome

Thanks for visiting our PC Women’s Page! My name is Joni Oquist and I have the extreme privilege and blessing of leading the women of our faith family. I grew up in a Pastor’s home (and then married a Pastor!) and cannot stress enough the value of being connected to a loving church community.  It’s really where we learn to live the life God intended for us through the study of His Word, development of our spiritual gifts, and formation of lasting relationships.

NEW BIBLE STUDY begins 2021

We are extremely excited to announce we will be back for in-person PC Women’s Bible study on Wednesday, January 13, 2021!  Here’s a bit of information about the study we will be doing.

TAKE COURAGE

Jennifer Rothschild

Sometimes the landscapes of our lives feel wrecked, with our hope and purpose in shambles. We can become distracted and discouraged. That must have been how the Jewish people felt when they returned to their wrecked land after exile and began rebuilding the temple.

The prophet Haggai reminded them they could find courage in the God who had never left them. God’s presence and promises continue to give us that same courage to press on and trust Him with our story.

In this 7-session study on the Book of Haggai, learn to walk confidently in your calling, stay motivated despite opposition, and courageously invest your life in God’s purposes.

the new | next experience for women

We invite you to join us online this fall for “The New”.

The theme of this 9 – week Bible study is “Uncharted”.

We will discuss groups and individuals throughout the Bible to whom God gave a new start, led them on a new path, or gave a new assignment.

Explore their lives, their responses, and ultimately the choices they made in order to navigate the uncharted path God put before them.

This enlightening new series will include a Bible study homework lesson for those that want to dig into God’s word!

Even though the fall session of “The New” is now complete, you can still view previous episodes on facebook.com/pcwomen and peopleschurch.org/youtube. The homework will still be available to complete along with this study.

 

Phemom: The Mom Phenomenon

Phemom was created in 2012 to encourage the phenomenal moms of our faith community as they raise their kids.  Small groups are formed and led by moms of older children. These “Model Moms” listen, share wisdom, and give love and prayer support to each mom in her group.  Phemom is a treasured space on every Phemom’s calendar as a time to recharge and be reminded she is not alone.

Starting September 22 we will be meeting in virtual groups to watch a life-changing series called, The Good Gospel by Jennie Allen. You can view the trailer here: https://youtu.be/KtYN1sNh8TU

Do we live like we believe every part of the gospel? In this six-week study with Jennie Allen, Jamie Ivey, and Jackie Hill Perry, learn about the foundation of our faith to discover how God brings us from death to life, from fallen to free.

For more information on Phemom or how to participate in a virtual group, please email us at women@peopleschurch.org.

Latte & Lit Book Club

Latte and Lit will not be meeting Tuesday, December 1 at 6:30pm due to COVID restrictions. We look forward to seeing you in the new year!

We invite you to pick up our selection for the month of November, The Blue Bottle Club by Penelope J. Stokes.

During the 1929 depression, four teenage girls write their dreams for the future on slips of paper and place them in a bottle. Sixty-five years later when a reporter comes across them, she traces the whereabouts of the women. She finds that though their dreams may not have been fulfilled, they met life’s difficulties with great courage.

“A beautiful novel about friendship and the power of faith to renew our dreams.”

—Angela Hunt, author of Magdalene

Boutique

Do you have a Pinterest board? Does your car automatically head to Hobby Lobby or Jo-Ann’s even if your craft cupboards are bursting at the seams? If so, bring your crafting skills to Boutique!

Women of all ages are invited to gather every Thursday morning to create beautiful items for our annual Holiday Boutique Sale. The proceeds go to benefit various projects in and around Peoples Church.

Currently, Boutique is taking a pause.  As restrictions are lifted and the threat of Covid-19 is lessened, we will prayerfully consider resuming.

Piecemakers

These wonderful women share their love of quilting by giving of their time to design and create quilts to be donated to local groups, charities and ministries such as The Fresno Rescue Mission and Teen Challenge. They meet the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month in the Multi-Purpose Room from 9am-12pm.

Piecemakers is currently taking a pause.  As restrictions are lifted and the threat of Covid-19 is lessened, we will prayerfully consider resuming.

women support groups

S.A.R.A.H. is for women who desire to move through the healing steps of recovery from sexual abuse. For more information, contact Barbara Solis, barbaras@peopleschurch.org or 559.298.8001.

In small confidential groups, this 12-week Bible study is an opportunity to examine your experience, identify the impact of the loss, and acknowledge feelings and beliefs you may struggle with.  Because of the emotional numbness and secrecy that often surrounds this experience, conflicting emotions can later emerge as symptoms of post abortion trauma.  We learn to apply Biblical principles to those symptoms as we look to God for genuine and permanent healing.  For more information, please contact Rhonda: rkbdesign49@gmail.com

The Precepts class follows the inductive Bible study method taught by Kay Arthur. For more information, email women@peopleschurch.org.

 

What do we do with these raw emotions? Is it really possible to make emotions work for us instead of against us?  God gave us emotions to experience life, NOT destroy it! For more information, email barbaras@peopleschurch.org.
