Women's Tuesday Night Study

Announcing our New Fall Study!  Our Tuesday evening group will start back up Tuesday evening, September 14 with another Jerry Bridges book entitled The Practice of Godliness. Click the title to order your book.  Be sure and purchase the 2016 edition, which includes the study guide.


Book Description:

Scripture tells us that God has given us "everything we need for life and godliness." But what makes a Christian godly? In The Practice of Godliness, Jerry Bridges examines what it means to grow in Christian character and helps us establish the foundation upon which that character is built. Bridges opens our eyes to see how character formation affects the way we relate to God, to ourselves, and to others.  In order to live godly lives, we need an inward foundation of God-centeredness. This book will help you establish that foundation and then build an outward structure of godlikeness.


This study will meet every other Tuesday through the Fall.  We plan to continue the Zoom platform along with our regular meeting on site.  Email info@pacifichope.com to sign up, and specify whether you'll join the study in person or via Zoom.  


                                                                                                                                                                                                              

Women's Wednesday Morning Study

The Wednesday morning study in The Pursuit of Holiness by Jerry Bridges, will break for the summer after the June 23rd session.  We'll pick back up starting back on September 8, 2021 at 9:30 am in El Cajon (see our schedule, below). You're welcome to join us at any point, even if you haven't been with us so far.  (Click here if you need to order the book: The Pursuit of Holiness. We're using the 2016 edition which includes a study guide.)

Important Note:  We will augment the study guide in the book with additional questions for a more in-depth study.  These additional questions will be posted for download in the schedule below on this web page as they become available.  Be sure and check back as you prepare for each new lesson.


Book Description:

God commands His people, "Be holy, for I am holy." But holiness is something that is often missed in the Christian's daily life. That's because we're not exactly sure what our part in holiness is. In this spiritual growth classic, Jerry Bridges helps us see clearly just what we should rely on God to do--and where we need to accept responsibility. Whether you're just beginning your pursuit of holiness or continuing your journey, these timeless principles and guidelines will challenge you to joyfully obey God's command of holiness.

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).


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 2020, but if you are interested in the next session, please email info@pacifichope.com.
