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

We invite you to join us online this fall for “The New”, starting September 16 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!

We can’t wait to see you, September 16 for the fall series of “The New”.

Episodes will air every Wednesday starting September 16 at 10am and 7pm on facebook.com/pcwomen and peopleschurch.org/youtube. There are Bible Study groups that meet virtually and in-homes every week to watch the weekly episode and discuss the homework. If you would like to join a group please email us at women@peopleschurch.org.


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.
