Women

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.

PC WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDIES

20/20 SEEN. CHOSEN. SENT. BY CHRISTINE CAINE

Develop a New Understanding of How God Sees You

Christine Caine is passionate about seeing every woman equipped to live her life on mission for Jesus.

In this 7-session study, you’ll develop a new understanding of how God sees you and has chosen you to help make Jesus’ name known on this planet. Through biblical teaching and lessons from her own life, Christine will challenge you to share the story of how God’s love has transformed your life right where you are.

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

Christmas comes just in time in the pages of our final selection of the year, Catching Christmas by Terri Blackstock.  As a first-year law associate, Sydney Batson knows she will be updating her resume by New Year’s if she loses her current case. So when her grandmother gets inexplicably ill while she’s in court, Sydney arranges for a cab to get her to the clinic.

The last thing cab driver Finn Parrish wants is to be saddled with a wheelchair-bound old lady with dementia. But because Miss Callie reminds him of his own mother, whom he failed miserably in her last days, he can’t say no when she keeps calling him for rides. Once a successful gourmet chef, Finn’s biggest concern now is paying his rent, but half the time Callie doesn’t remember to pay him. And as she starts to feel better, she leads him on wild-goose chases to find a Christmas date for her granddaughter.

When Finn meets Sydney, he’s quite sure she’s never needed help finding a date. Does Miss Callie have an ulterior motive, or is this just a mission driven by delusions? He’s willing to do whatever he can to help fulfill Callie’s Christmas wish. He just never expected to be a vital part of it.

Join us on Tuesday, December 3 at 6:30pm in the Multi-Purpose Room for an end of the year celebration and lively discussion of this entertaining read.

The Precepts class follows the inductive Bible study method taught by Kay Arthur. In our next session begins January 15. 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.

SARAH is a small, confidential and safe group for women who have been sexually abused as a child.  This support group works through curriculum to move towards healing the effects of sexual abuse.

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

Begins Tuesday, September 24 | 6:30-8pm

Are you overcome by various circumstances in life, struggling with depression, or do you feel as though no one understands?  Then come join this small group for support.  Max Lucado’s book, You’ll Get Through This, will be discussed each week along with time for prayer.
