Women's Ministry

An opportunity for women to gather together to share in the struggles and joys of life.  At PBF we have weekly Bible studies just for women as well as annual events.  Our leadership works as a team with different individuals taking crucial lead roles throughout the year.  Each year we have an offsite women's retreat, a Christmas dessert and another large event in the spring.  Smaller scale opportunities to connect and share with other women will happen throughout the year.  Consider being a part of the directional team or just jump in to an event and bring a friend.  Connecting women with serving, coaching/mentoring and other opportunities to grow is a big part of where we are going.  Contact us for more information.

boundaries Boundaries by Cloud and Townsend
Tuesday 9:30 am
Starting January 10th with Bethany Dieringer, Val Otheim, Joy Pope

If you’ve ever wondered how to reclaim your life in the midst of relationships that take a toll on your energy, say no to overwhelming obligations, or are just getting tired of feeling as if your life is out of control, this class might be for you.  We will be exploring and applying the biblical principles found in Boundaries: When to Say Yes, How to Say No to Take Control of Your Life written by Christian psychologists Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. Stewart Townsend. Topics will include: What are Biblical boundaries? Why should Christians have boundaries? What if someone is upset or hurt by my boundaries? Aren’t boundaries selfish and unloving? Why do I feel guilty or afraid when I consider setting boundaries?


Gospel of John
by John
Tuesday 9:30 am
Starting February 7th with Joy Rueb

Bible Study for women based in Gospel of John.   It is considered one of the most beloved books of the Bible because it presents us with such the clear picture of the character of Jesus and His relationship to God the Father, and the role of the Holy Spirit in our lives.  Its grand themes sweep with the breath of eternity: Truth, Grace, Light, Way, Life.  But at the same time, as seen in the encounters of Jesus’ with individuals, it is deeply personal and challenging.

John speaks to the minds and hearts of those seeking to know Jesus for the first time and also to those who have walked with Him for many years and want to discover a renewal of Jesus’ call to the discipleship, fellowship and love.


You'll Get Through This, Hope and Help For Your Turbulent Times
by Max Lucado  
Tuesday 9:30 am
Starting January 17th with Carol Caldwell

You’ll get through this. It won’t be painless. It won’t be quick. But God will use this mess for good. Don’t be foolish or naïve. But don’t despair either. With God’s help, you’ll get through this.

You fear you won't make it through. We all do. We fear that the depression will never lift, the yelling will never stop, the pain will never leave. In the pits, surrounded by steep walls and aching reminders, we wonder: Will this gray sky ever brighten? This load ever lighten?

With the compassion of a pastor, the heart of a storyteller, and the joy of one who has seen what God can do, Max explores the story of Joseph and the truth of Genesis 50:20. What Satan intends for evil, God redeems for good.

Beloved Disciple: The Life and Ministry of John by Beth Moore
Tuesday 9:30 am
Starting September 13th with Billie Malone

Every disciple and early follower of Christ left a legacy for future believers. John's legacy was love. Perhaps like no other disciple, John understood that relationship is the point. Every command of Christ and call to obedience is to enhance relationship and place the recipient in a posture the Giver can bless. This study is about finding our way to the heart of Jesus and reclining so closely that our pulse begins to throb in tandem, loving what He loves and hating what He hates.

Tuesday 9:30 am

1 Samuel Precept Study- God's Search For A Man After His Own Heart
Tuesday 9:30 am
Starting Sept 13th with Tammi Keffer

Grab a box of colored pencils and we will take an indepth look at the book of 1 Samuel. From judges to kings, from the departure of God's glory to the assurance of His help, from inquiring of the Lord to inquiring of a medium - this book of contrasts sets before us the importance of a life of obedience and how it's lived out in the midst of interpersonal conflicts.  We will be moving on a slower pace (2 weeks per lesson).

 

Back to the beginning; God's Plan of Restoration
