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

“In Isaiah 43:19 the LORD says,

 “For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it?”


It’s a new day, a new season, and our PC Women’s weekly Bible studies are in a new format!


“The New” stands for The Next Experience for Women and is our Facebook live PC Women’s Talk Show.


Every Wednesday at 10am & 7pm “The New” will air live on our PC Women’s Facebook page, at the same times we would usually meet during the summer months. Each week I will be joined by 2 or 3 other PC women for an uplifting time of sharing, laughter, a devotional, and prayer.


You can watch alone, or gather with friends!  As “The New” airs live, you will have the ability to interact with us by posting comments and prayer requests during the stream.


At a time when we are unable to have the size of gatherings we have become so accustomed to, our prayer is that “The New” will help you feel connected to each other and engaged in what God is doing. To stay up to date with everything happening at PC Women, you can like, follow, and share our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/pcwomen


Welcome to “The New”!  See you soon!”

Latte & Lit Book Club

Latte and Lit is currently taking a pause from meeting together due to COVID restrictions. We invite you to pick up our selection for the month of August, She Said Yes: The Unlikely Martyrdom of Cassie Bernall, told with unflinching honesty by her mother Misty Bernall.

“One of the most gripping stories to come out of the shooting at Columbine High School”
is told in the acclaimed national bestseller that illuminates the most remarkable aspect of 17-year-old Cassie Bernall’s tragic death: her life.

She Said Yes is a memoir of an ordinary teenager growing up in suburban Colorado, and faced — as all teenagers are — with difficult choices and pressures. It is only now, when the world knows Cassie Bernall as one of the Columbine High students killed by two rampaging schoolmates, that the choices she made offer a profound relevance for us all. Once a rage-filled young woman who walked a path similar to that of her killers, Cassie found a way out of her personal snares and, through her faith and a family’s love, chose to embrace life with courage and conviction.

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
