PC Women

PC-040 new


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.


The Faithful

Join us as we explore crucial moments in the lives of five Old Testament figures—Esther, Gideon, Malachi, Nehemiah, and Hosea. Through their stories, we will discover how God uses the lives of ordinary people for His glory and the good of His people.  Wednesdays, June 12-July 10 at 10-11:30am in the Student Ministry Center or 7-8:30pm in the Jackie Johnson Room.

Child care is provided for those attending the evening classes.

Latte & Lit Book Club

Make sure to pick up your copy of The Promise of Jesse Woods by award-winning author Chris Fabry.  The summer of 1972 was the most pivotal of Matt Plumley’s childhood as his family relocated from Pittsburgh, PA to Dogwood, VA so his father could pastor the local church there.

Thankfully, Matt quickly formed friendships with Dickie Darrel Lee Hancock and Jesse Woods. As Matt begins to fall for Jesse, their promises to each other draw him deeper into her terrifying reality.

One night, certain church members collide with Jesse’s family over revelations of their past. Matt joins Jesse in a rescue that saves one life and ends another. The bond of their friendship is severed.

Years later, Matt is pulled back to Dogwood by news of Jesse’s upcoming wedding. He could never shake the feeling that there was more to the story of that fateful night, and he’s determined to learn the truth behind the only promise Jesse Woods ever broke.

Join us on Tuesday, July 30 at 6:30pm in the Multi-Purpose Room to discuss this compelling read and enjoy lattes together.

The Precepts class follows the inductive Bible study method taught by Kay Arthur. In our next session beginning September 11 we will be studying Daniel Part 2. Classes are taught by Leslie Gulke on Wednesdays from 9-11:30am in the Jackie Johnson Room. We listen to the DVD by Kay Arthur during the second hour of class.

This class is for those who have suffered sexual abuse and want to work through the effects of the abuse and pursue healing.  It offers a small support group where time is spent sharing and discussing our text, Mending the Soul by Steven Tracy.  Contact Barbara Solis at barbaras@peopleschurch.org or 559.298.8001 ext 267

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

Tuesdays, June 11 – July 30 –  6:30-8:30pm

Are you overcome by daily disappointments, struggling with depression, or have you had a life altering loss?  If so please join this confidential small group for support and Bible study. We utilize Lysa Terkeurst’s book, It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way, that will help you find unexpected strength when disappointment leaves you shattered.

For more information, please email Barbara Solis at barbaras@peopleschurch.org.

When you experience a betrayal of intimacy in your marriage- whether through your husband’s struggle with pornography or infidelity there is a need for wise and understanding counsel to guide you through sorrow, guilt, anger, bitterness and resentment. We will be using the book The Healing Choice, which will help move beyond  your pain and find hope for genuine healing. For more information contact Barbara Solis at barbaras@peopleschurch.org


If you frequent stores like Jo-Ann’s and Hobby Lobby and find yourself on Pinterest quite often, our Boutique ministry is for you!  Every Thursday, from 9am-12pm in the Multi-Purpose Room women of all ages come together to create beautiful items for our annual Holiday Boutique Sale.  The proceeds go to benefit various projects in and around Peoples Church.


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.
