grace point women

Our Women’s Ministry exists to encourage spiritual growth through the study of the Scriptures, to equip women to serve Christ and others, 

to develop and strengthen intimate friendships with other women and promote biblical womanhood so that we might know God fully and experience the freedom to fulfill God's purposes for our lives. Our Women's Ministry offerings are available to women of all ages and seasons of life.  We offer lots of opportunities to get involved and connect with other women at Grace Point, such as Bible studies, 

Women's Outreach and Fellowship, mentoring, praying for our children and families, our quilters, our annual retreat weekends at

Harvey Cedars Bible Conference at the Jersey Shore, our Christmas Tea and more! We've got something just for you!

We invite you to participate in the various expressions of this vital ministry.

bible Studies

Life change happens when we gather in biblical community and connect with others. We do this in groups where we can know and care for each other, encourage each other to grow spiritually, and invite others to join us. Women’s Bible Studies are one way that you can connect with others at Grace Point. Bible Studies are a great way to meet amazing women who love God and want to study His Word together.

American playwright, Arthur Miller observed, “In every successful drama there is something which makes a person say, ‘Hey! That’s me!’” The story may act like a mirror in which we recognize ourselves and which helps us to understand ourselves better.


Jesus was a masterful storyteller and His stories, particularly His parables, have precisely the same effect. When we read them properly, we see ourselves. However, not only are the Lord Jesus’ stories mirrors, they are also windows into the heart and mind of God. As a result, they not only reveal who we are, but they also reveal more about who God is! The Lord’s parables bring encouragement because in them we meet ourselves and our God.


However, not all of Jesus’ parables served as mirrors or as a means of illumination; sometimes they served as veils to hide the truth. Why would Jesus hide the truth? Please join us as we study many of the parables of Jesus and listen to His wonderful “in other words”!

Do you ever feel a disconnect between your Sunday morning faith and your Monday morning mom life?  Motherhood is HARD. One second, we think we're doing a good enough job, but the next we think we're the worst mom on the planet. This is why we need the refreshing truth of the Gospel to give us hope in the everyday moments. 


Join us on an exciting adventure as we explore and study RISEN MOTHERHOOD- Gospel Hope for Everyday Moments.


We are a group of imperfect moms, sharing real joys and real struggles, striving to serve a perfect God through our motherhood. We welcome any other imperfect moms of "littles" to join us, to be encourage and challenged, as we walk this path together.

This twelve-part Bible study, filmed on location in Greece, walks through Paul’s letter to the Corinthian church. Our hope is that the video teachings from Jennie Allen combined with the content of this study guide will deepen your understanding of what God has to say through the book of 1 Corinthians. Jennie is passionate about God’s Word and discipleship. We believe you will find her to be a helpful guide on your journey through this book.


Some sections of 1 Corinthians might be familiar, like the “wedding verses” in 1 Corinthians 13, but there’s so much more to the letter. This Bible study series will take you on a journey to discover what it means to live a risky, others-centered life. For each session, you’ll find goals for the week—things we want to walk away knowing, feeling, and doing differently as a result of the teaching. In addition, you’ll encounter questions designed to help you consider and apply the video teaching to your own life. At the end, you’ll have to answer a very important question: Will you live the risky, others-centered life as well?

Come gather and grow with us in God’s Word as we  study from the book of Titus together and learn to be adorned with the Gospel, and to adorn the Gospel in the eyes of others. This study is for women of every age and every season of life! We will meet 14 times. 


Many of us feel unqualified to speak into the lives of others. The good news is, we can share and teach out of our strengths and our failures to point others to the amazing grace of God. The life-to-life model from Titus 2, the sharing of life between women, would be neither effective nor needful if any of us had it all together.


In Adorned: Living Out the Beauty of the Gospel Together best-selling author Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth walks readers through this Titus 2 model and shows how each woman has a vital part to play in adorning the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the other women around them. We will learn to be Titus 2 women consistently, contentedly and beautifully. 


“…so that in everything they may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior.” (Titus 2:10)

Materials: Missing Pieces (Jennifer Rothschild)

Cost of Materials: $14 (pay leader directly)


Does God care? Is He fair? Is He even there? Although you may know all the right answers, they don’t always feel right. This Bible study explores these and other questions of faith. God’s ways don’t always make sense, but He is trustworthy. Come close to Him. Trust Him. God will reveal Himself and fill in your missing pieces.


Participants who take this study will:

-Experience unexpected peace in spite of unexpected heartache

-Hang on to God’s answers when you feel you are at the end of your rope

-Move forward when you feel stuck in your circumstances

-Have a greater sense of peace through every storm you face

-Strengthen your faith when you feel beat down by life

-Survive unexpected storms knowing God is in your boat

-Experience stability when tidal waves of emotion hit

-Trust God more than your feelings


Please join us on Sunday mornings during 2nd service as we learn to trust God more than our feelings.

mentoring

Mentoring is God’s idea – and God’s idea for us. We believe that God wants us to be in each other’s lives for the purpose of growing deeper in our relationships with Jesus. This can occur in casual, informal friendships, or in a formal mentoring relationship.  


“Spiritual mentoring is walking alongside of another person in his or her spiritual journey with the focus on Jesus... (It’s) an invitation…freely declared to all growing followers of Jesus as a fact, rather than an option. Spiritual mentoring helps us all transform together in Jesus!” (Ele Parrott in Transforming Together, pp 47-48.) 


The GP Women's Ministry seeks to encourage women at Grace Point to come alongside one another, in humility and love, to partner in life’s journey with each other and with God. 


To help in this process, the Mentoring Ministry offers the following:

  • Mentoring Series (M&Ms) each winter – where women grow in their relationships with one another as they dig deeper into God’s Word. Teaching for this 8-week study is specifically from Titus 2. At the conclusion of the series, the women are paired in mentoring relationships (by way of their personal input) for 10 months.       
  • No Mentor Left Behind (NMLB) - is designed to ensure that each mentor feels supported and has the best opportunity to develop a strong and healthy relationship with her mentee. For the first year of any formal mentoring relationship, each mentor will have available to her a Team Member of NMLB who will offer encouragement through regular contact and prayer. This Team Member can provide resources or study suggestions and offer support to the mentor about any concerns or barriers in connecting with her mentee. A Team Member will pray with the mentor and for the mentor.

Interested? Contact Barb Brown or Joan Zeberlein if you are interested in the M&M Series or D Groups, and we will help you with the next steps! You can also complete our Mentoring Profile form online.


We recommend that all women interested in mentoring read Transforming Together by Ele Parrott. You can borrow this book from the church library, or you might want to purchase your own copy. There are a lot of great, little nuggets you'll want to underline and refer back to from time to time.


For a list of suggestions (both studies or books to use in mentoring relationships) review our Mentoring Resources List.


We love you so much, we are delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God, but our lives as well. (adapted from 1 Thessalonians 2:8)


Have a Mentor. Be a Mentor.

GP QUILTERS

Do you like working with fabric, sewing or quilting? Or would you like to LEARN how to quilt? Join us on selected Saturdays from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm to make quilts together. Bring your lunch and your sewing machine, if you have one. (We do have extra sewing machines here at church.)


Our quilters meet to make quilts to bring love and comfort to seriously ill or children in need in our area. We donate the quilts we make together to various organizations (such as Quilts for Kids and Esperanza Health Center), who then deliver the quilts to pediatric hospitals and foster care ministries.
