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.

A Summer of Psalms - Online Bible Study

(Registration is free but necessary so we can send you the details and the online link.) It is our prayer that we will be encouraged through time spent connecting as women through friendship, worship and the study of God's Word during a time when we are physically apart. Pour yourself a glass of lemonade or iced tea, and open your Bible to the Psalms. This will be a time of refreshing!

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 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 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 if you are interested in the M&M Series or have any questions. 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.


Our Mentoring Ministry Leadership Team ~ Barb Brown (Coordinator), Marlene Bollman, Denise Nichols, Michelle Piccioni, Denise O'Brien, Sandy Schnittjer and Joan Zeberlein.

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.
