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

What we offer

We offer lots of opportunities to get involved and connect with other women at Grace Point. From Bible studies (see below) to Women's Outreach and Fellowship, to mentoring (see below), to praying for our kids and families, to our annual retreat weekends at Harvey Cedars Bible Conference at the Jersey Shore.  We've got something just for 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.

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 (BHB320@aol.com) or Joan Zeberlein (jzeberlein@gracepointpa.org) 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.

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.
