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.

the new | next experience for women

The theme of our winter season of “The New” is GOD REVEALED

Reveal means to allow something to be seen that, until then, had been hidden.

It is impossible for us to describe our almighty, omnipotent, Creator God but as we seek to know him, He reveals Himself to us in ALL kinds of ways!

Each episode of “The New” will feature one of our PC women highlighting a portion of scripture and sharing how God revealed the truth of that scripture to her through a personal story.

Reading a scripture about God’s love, His peace or provision is awesome, but truly experiencing those characteristics at times in life when we need them the most is life-changing!.

The New will be posted each Wednesday, beginning January 20 at 10am on facebook.com/pcwomen and peopleschurch.org/youtube. If you are interested in being a part of a small group please contact us at women@peopleschurch.org.

TAKE COURAGE

by 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.

Phemom: The Mom Phenomenon

HOW TO READ YOUR BIBLE
By Jennie Allen

Join Phemom for this 6-week study—How to Read Your Bible, by Jennie Allen. We will be meeting in virtual groups from March 8—April 19 to dive deep into this study that will give you new confidence in understanding the Bible and a hunger to know it more.

Does the Bible feel too intimidating and complex? Does understanding it feel impossible, so you don’t even try?

In this six-week study, we want to help you understand why the Bible is the greatest tool we have. We want to open your eyes to the way the Old Testament and New Testament connect and show you the purpose of each book of the Bible.

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

We will be meeting via Zoom Tuesday, March 30 at 6:30pm. Please email women@peopleschurch.org if you would like to be added to the Latte & Lit mailing list.​

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.
