PC Women



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.


Return Rebuild Restore

A Study on Ezra and Nehemiah

Many see an obvious need, but few decide to do something about it. Ezra and Nehemiah were men who stepped up to take on big challenges and motivated countless others to do the same. We can focus on how bad things are, or answer God’s call to return to Him, rebuild what has been broken, and experience His divine restoration.

Our Bible studies are designed to help you grow in your understanding of the Bible, as well as in your relationship with God and each other. You will be placed in a small group with a leader that is committed to praying for you and encouraging you along the way. No matter what stage of life you’re in, we want to meet you right where you are!

Latte & Lit Book Club

Our team has selected a first-century legal thriller by Randy Singer titled The Advocate as our August read.  This book was a 2015 Christy Award finalist and ECPA Christian Book Award Winner.

At the trial of Christ, brilliant young assessor Theophilus suggests that Pontius Pilate offer to release Barabbas. But the strategy backfires—and an innocent man suffers crucifixion. Three decades later, Theophilus defends Paul against Nero’s baseless accusations. Can he mount a defense that will keep another blameless man from execution?

The advocate’s first trial altered the course of history. His last will change the fate of an empire.

We invite you to join us on Tuesday evening, August 27 at 6:30pm in the Multi-Purpose Room to discuss this action packed story.

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
