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 COMING APRIL 14, 2021

We are extremely excited to announce we will be back for in-person PC Women’s Bible study beginning April 14! We will be meeting at 9:30am in the Student Ministry Center and 7pm in the Worship Arts Theater.

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

Free of Me
By Sharon Hodde Miller

Join Phemom for this 5-week study—Free of Me, by Sharon Hodde Miller. We will be meeting in virtual and in-home groups from April 26-May 24.

In this 5-part series, Sharon Hodde Miller invites us into a bigger, Jesus-centered vision—one that restores our freedom and inspires us to live for more. Based on her book Free of Me, this study unveils our deepest insecurities and equips us to focus on God and others instead of ourselves. Discover a purpose bigger than “project me” and experience freedom from the burden of self-focus.

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.

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.

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, email barbaras@peopleschurch.org

Confidential small group for support and Bible study for women who are struggling with depression and anxiety.  You may feel broken but God has an amazing purpose for your life.  Contact Barbara Solis @ 559-298-8001 or barbaras@peopleschurch.org

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.
