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.



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

Happy New Year ladies!  Our first book of the year is Legacy of Mercy by Lynn Austin.

Having returned to Chicago, young socialite Anna Nicholson can’t seem to focus on her upcoming marriage. The new information she’s learned about her birth mother continues to pull at her, and she hires Pinkerton detectives to help her find the truth. But as she meets people who once knew her mother and hears stories about the past, Anna soon discovers that some secrets are better left hidden.

At the same time, unflattering stories about Anna are leaked by someone who would love to see her disgraced and her engagement broken. And as Anna tries to share her faith with her society friends, she understands that her choice to seek God’s purpose for her life isn’t as simple as she had hoped.

Join us on Tuesday, January 28th at 6:30pm in the Multi-Purpose Room to discuss this compelling story and enjoy lattes together.  All are welcome!

The Precepts class follows the inductive Bible study method taught by Kay Arthur. 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.


Begins Monday, September 30 | 10am-12pm

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
