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.

WOMEN'S OUTREACH AND FELLOWSHIP

If you enjoy keeping your hands busy while sharing in sweet fellowship, then this group is for you. We share the Gospel by supporting missionaries and local ministries. We create, collect, and donate tangible items to assist them in reaching

others for Christ.


We gather monthly on the third Wednesday from September to June in Room 403 - The Clubhouse. (We do not meet in December.) Bring lunch for yourself. Dessert and beverages will be served. Childcare is provided until 11:45 am. 


We would love to have you join us! We have women of all ages and all skill levels of crafting. There are a variety of projects we work on together each month. 


If you would like to connect with Lori Wilson, our Women's Outreach & Fellowship coordinator, you can reach her at women.fellowship@gracepointpa.org. You may also call the church office at 215.968.2354, and we will connect Lori with  you.


We look forward to meeting you!


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.

One day, while traveling near the Sea of  Galilee, Jesus spoke to His disciples about what it means to follow Him. Jesus' teaching has become known as the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7) and is Jesus' longest explanation of what is looks like to live as a believer following Him. The Sermon on the Mount represents the major ideals of the Christian life. Jesus taught on prayer, care for the needy, the law, divorce, fasting, justice, salvation and more. 


Jesus made it clear that His followers should live in a noticeably different way than other people because His followers hold to a godly standard of conduct -- a standard of love and selflessness that Jesus Himself would embody when He gave His life on the cross for our sins. Jesus commands His followers to do better than what culture and society allow or expect -- to Live Right Side Up in an Upside Down World.

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.
  • Discipleship Groups ("D" Groups) ongoing - where women from all ages and stages form groups of 4, 5 or 6 people to work through Greg Ogden’s book, Discipleship Essentials: A Guide to Building Your Life in Christ. Groups will make a commitment to meet 1x/week or 2x/month for 6 months giving opportunities to grow in relationship with one another and with God.

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 mistreated children 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.
