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: Living Wisely in a Foolish World

Proverbs is a book of wise principles which signify the way life typically works.

It is not a magic wand that we use to make every difficult situation simply disappear.

However, it is a guide to shape our thoughts, prayers and experiences.

Following Jesus as He reveals His wisdom through many of the words of Solomon

will bolster our trust in and love for God, and help us to live wisely in a foolish world.

Current Study: 1 Peter: A Living Hope in Christ by Jen Wilkin

Purchase Book Here

Our inheritance through Christ is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. In 1 Peter, a man of faith and flaws and eyewitness to the life of Christ challenges us to look beyond our current circumstances to a future inheritance. He shares his concerns on big picture issues for the early church, describes believers' true identity in Christ, and ultimately helps readers discover what it means to experience the Living Hope they have in Christ. Key themes of humility, submission, and identity in Christ guide the study of 1 Peter as participants are challenged to read the book in its entirety each week. ~ Lifeway

Current Study: Just Do Something: A Liberating Approach to Finding God's Will

by Kevin DeYoung

Purchase Book Here

Author Kevin DeYoung challenges Christians to settle down, make choices and do the hard work of seeing those choices through. Too often, he writes, God's people tinker with churches, jobs and relationships, worrying that they haven't found God's perfect will for their lives... or do absolutely nothing in a state of paralyzed indecision. In this biblically-based study, we will learn how God reveals His plan for our lives and how to move forward.

We hope to see you!!

Purchase Book Here

"The whole concept of brokenness can be intimidating and threatening, especially once

you start to discuss it with others! We all face the common temptations to be more

concerned about what others think than about what God thinks, to fear our needs or

failures being exposed, and to sinfully compare ourselves to each other.

As you open your heart to the Lord and to those in your group, remember that

brokenness and humility are the keys that will unlock some of

God’s richest blessings in your life and relationships.

Do you need a fresh encounter with God? 

Are you ready for Him to pour out His grace on the dry, thirsty ground of your heart?

Before every great movement of God, there is always a time of deep repentance."

~ Revive Our Hearts Ministry

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 typically 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) in the spring - 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 are 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.


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

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 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm in Room 403 - The Clubhouse. (We do not meet in December.) Bring lunch for yourself. Dessert and beverages will be served. COME WHEN YOU CAN, LEAVE WHEN YOU MUST!  Childcare is provided until 11:45 a.m. 


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 Jasmine Kortepeter, 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 Jasmine with  you.
