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.

More Than Anything - Loving God Above Everything Else

Led by Lynn Ely and Gail Benchener

Cost $7

(Schedule note: Easter Week Break)

This study is on the topic of idolatry. There are many things vying for the affections of the heart, 

but only God can truly fulfill our needs and satisfy every longing. 

We hope to uproot and identify idols we have and

that we will find ourselves loving God more than anything. (Daily Grace Co.)


Next Study: It Is Well ~ Walking Away From Anxiety and Into God's Word (March 2022)

Led by Lynn Ely and Sherri Wolf

It Is Well encourages women to go to the Lord with their worries and anxieties, 

and to rest in His all-sufficient grace. The study walks through Scripture

and points to the source of our hope in all of life's anxieties. 

We are reminded that God can redeem even our fear, worry

and anxiety for our good and for His glory. 

This study is designed to point you to God, to help you to know Him more, 

and to equip you with the Word of God to turn from anxious thoughts and into the Father's arms. 

We are praying that it will encourage and comfort you. (Daily Grace Co.)

In his book, Gentle and Lowly, Dane Ortlund takes readers into the depths of Christ’s very heart for sinners. 

Focusing on the  words of Jesus that He is “gentle and lowly in heart,” 

Ortlund dives deep into Bible passages that speak of who Christ is,

Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart,

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.
