Women's Ministry Fall Retreat
Saturday October 29, 2022 9 am to 1 pm at Parkers Lake Baptist Church
We seek to better know our God through the serious study of his word, with emphasis on learning how we can glorify God as Christian women (I Peter 3: 1-7, Ephesians 5: 22-33).
- Bible Study: The women of PLBC study a book of the Bible in small group format. Groups have met in homes and at the church, in the evening and during the day depending on availability (childcare available for the day group). For Fall 2022, we will be studying the book of John using Kathleen Nielson's John: That You May Believe, which is a 20-week study (10 weeks in the fall and 10 weeks in the winter/spring) of the Gospel of John.
- Book Study: The women of PLBC read and discuss a book aimed at teaching us either more about God or a relevant topic of Christianity. Recent books include: Hospitality Comes with a Housekey by Rosaria Butterfield, The Reason for God by Timothy Keller, and Women of the Word by Jen Wilken. Book studies typically take place over the summer months. To find out more about an upcoming book study, see Brinn Watson.
- Scripture Memory: Women of PLBC are motivated to memorize God’s word. Meeting times vary according to availability. If you are interested in scripture memory, please see Jana Eads.
We seek to love God and others by encouraging one another through Biblical mentorship and Christ-centered community (Titus 2:3-5)
- Mentorship: PLBC women value Biblical mentorship and seek to encourage women to grow in their love for God and others. The women of PLBC mentor through both formal and informal relationships, embracing opportunities to allow for mentorship through precious conversations before and after church, prayer times, and already scheduled activities. Reach out to our women's ministry coordinator, Mary Mead if you are interested in embarking on a formal mentoring relationship.
- Mom’s Morning Coffee: This PLBC group welcomes mothers to young children available during the day (participants range from working mothers with a day off to stay at home moms, from home-schooled families to traditionally schooled families). Events range from in-home fellowship during the winter to beach to park days during the summer. This group typically meets on Tuesday mornings throughout the school year. Please see Moriah Gilbertson for more information on this weekly group.
- Women's Craft Events: PLBC offers periodic crafting events to allow women to express God-given creativity and to provide the opportunity to invite friends and neighbors to PLBC.
We seek to challenge women towards a heart of service and good works motivated by our love for God, others, and our community (I Timothy 2:9-15, I Peter 4:8).
We are regularly informed of opportunities to serve the church family and our community by PLBC deaconesses. Opportunities include: making meals for new moms or sick members, prepping for a "Picnic in a Park" church fellowship, organizing a baby shower, or helping with a funeral.
Our deaconesses work together with the women of PLBC in promoting such opportunities for joint service in the local church. We seek to provide regular avenues of service through sharing in hospitality, lending aid to those in need, and planning church-wide events for fellowship and outreach.
The PLBC Women’s Ministry Coordinator serves the women of PLBC by collaborating with church leadership to promote and coordinate opportunities for the women of PLBC to grow in their knowledge of God, their love of God and each other, and their service to God’s church and the community.
