grace point women


Our Women’s Ministry exists to nurture growing in the grace and knowledge of Christ our Savior, to gather in fellowship and engage in service. Our prayer is that we would delight and abide together in God's Word, be renewed and transformed through the study of the Scriptures, cherish and share the Gospel, equip women to serve Christ and others, and develop and strengthen intimate friendships with other women. Our goal is to please and honor God, to know Him fully and to experience His freedom to fulfill His purposes for our lives. We know all of this is only possible by and because of God's grace and provision.


Our Women's Ministry Bible studies, outreaches and special events are for women of all ages and seasons of life.  We connect women through Bible studies, Women's Outreach and Fellowship, mentoring, praying for our children and families, our quilters, walking and our special events. We invite you to participate in the various expressions of this vital ministry.


Contact our Director of Women's Ministry, Sharon Sloan, any time at: women@gracepointpa.org.

bible Studies

Knowing God more intimately and life change happen through the study of His Word and when we gather in biblical community and connect with others. We do this in groups where we can know, challenge and care for each other, encourage each other to grow spiritually, and invite others to join us. Bible Studies are a great way to meet other women who love God and want to study His Word together.

Current Study (starting February 23): Parenting (14 Gospel Principles That Can Radically Change Your Family) by Paul David Tripp

What is your calling as a parent? In the midst of folding laundry, coordinating carpool schedules, and breaking up fights, many parents get lost. Feeling pressure to do everything “right” and raise up “good” children, it’s easy to lose sight of our ultimate purpose as parents in the quest for practical tips and guaranteed formulas. In this life-giving book, Paul Tripp offers parents much more than a to-do list. Instead, he presents us with a big-picture view of God’s plan for us as parents. Outlining fourteen foundational principles centered on the gospel, he shows that we need more than the latest parenting strategy or list of techniques. Rather, we need the rescuing grace of God―grace that has the power to shape how we view everything we do as parents. Freed from the burden of trying to manufacture life-change in our children’s hearts, we can embrace a grand perspective of parenting overflowing with vision, purpose, and joy. (Excerpt from Amazon)


In Parenting, author Paul David Tripp unfolds a more biblical perspective on parenting than merely adhering to a list of rules. He lays out fourteen gospel-centered principles that will radically change the way parents think about what it means to raise up a child, informing everything they do as a parent. Principles include grace, identity, lies, authority, foolishness, and character. (Excerpt from Lifeway)

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 Mentoring Ministry seeks to provide opportunities for women to connect with one another so that they can grow in relationships to encourage each other, while coming alongside one another in humility and love to partner in life’s journey together with God.


To help in this process, the Mentoring Ministry offers:

  • 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. 
  • Mentoring Series (Better Together) - [NEW!!] Spring 2022 - where  women grow in their relationships with one another as they dig deeper into God's Word. Teaching for this 8-week study is focused on reflecting God's character in our lives. At the conclusion of the series, the women are connected in mentoring groups (by way of personal input) for 8 months. The mentoring groups will be comprised of mentors and mentees.  Please register and express your interest here

If you have any questions about participating in a mentoring relationship, please contact Barb Brown. She and her team 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.
