2019 Pacific Hope Church Women's Retreat - July 12-14, 2019
Join us as we spend a weekend of fellowship, exploring the Bible's evidence of God's gracious and merciful intervention in the lives of His fallen creatures (us!). We'll look at the repeated reminders in Scripture of what was, and what is, noting the small but transformative phrase, "But GOD. . . " and how it changes everything! Our theme verses, Ephesians 2:4-5, encapsulate the greatest transformation of all:
"But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love
with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive
together with Christ (by grace you have been saved).”
We're returning once more to the lovely Ayres Hotel, Laguna Woods, about an hour north of San Diego, just off the I-5 freeway.

Women of Hope, the Women's Ministry of Pacific Hope Church, is part of the entire discipleship ministry of Pacific Hope Church. Under the direction and oversight of the Elders, Women of Hope is led by a team of women who meet regularly for the sake of accountability, leadership development, prayer, and planning. We exist to encourage and equip women to think and live according to the Word of God. Our desire is that every woman would know Christ personally and fulfill the Lord's requirement “to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with our God” (Micah 6:8).
Women's Tuesday Night Study
We have just finished an excellent study by Jen Wilkin exploring 1 Peter - A Living Hope in Christ. If you missed the study, there are still a few books available for sale at the Info Booth.
Our next study (to be announced) will begin in the Fall.
Women's Wednesday Morning Study
This study continues in Sinclair Ferguson's book, Let's Study Ephesians. The Wednesday morning women's group meets at 9:00 am on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Foundations of Hope
Based on the mandate found in Titus 2, Women of Hope launched a mentoring ministry in January 2015. The aim of this ministry is to equip women in these four foundational areas:
- Walk: Personal Bible study and prayer
- Home: Being busy at home as a single, wife and/or mom
- Doctrine: Spiritual life and biblical womanhood
- Fellowship: Hospitality and mentoring other women.
Through monthly small group meetings, mentors help women establish relationships with other women, learn to think Biblically, apply Biblical principles to relationships and circumstances, grow in godliness, and grow in their love for and service to the church.
Because these groups involve progressive teaching and mentoring, sign-ups are limited to the beginning of each two-year cycle. We currently have no start date scheduled for 2019, but if you are interested in the next session, please email email@example.com.
