Summer/Fall News and Updates
2020 Summer/Fall Studies
Both the Wednesday morning and Tuesday evening groups will hold summer sessions this year to help us stay engaged in fellowship with each other and our study of the Word in the absence of the Women's Retreat this year. Scroll down on this page to see what's going on!
Women's Tuesday Night Study
Update: Please see below for our revised schedule of meetings. Also, for the sake of continuity and our remote participants, we will continue with remote meetings only, for the duration of this study. Please join us via Zoom (link included below).
Since we will miss our usual summer Women's Retreat this year, we are offering a summer session to help us stay in the Word and in fellowship with each other. Join us for a study of Andrew Davis's book, "The Power of Christian Contentment," beginning July 7 through October 13, 2020. Please order your book online, and sign up here to RSVP for Zoom participation.* Study workbooks are available on request, or you can download questions here. Click here to join on Zoom!
"It may surprise modern Christians that our current problems with discontentedness are anything but new. In 1643, Puritan pastor Jeremiah Burroughs wrote a work titled "The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment" that has as much resonance in our day as it did in his.
Now, pastor and author Andrew M. Davis helps contemporary Christians rediscover the remarkable truths found in this largely forgotten work. With powerful new illustrations and a keen sense of all that makes modern Christians restless, Davis challenges readers to confront the sources of discontent in their lives and embrace Paul's teaching on contentment in all circumstances. He gives special attention to maintaining contentment through poverty and prosperity, as well as in our marriages, and offers tips on teaching children how to be content in an age of smartphones and social media."

Women's Wednesday Morning Study
Good news! We're coming back together again on September 9, 2020.
We will resume our Wednesday morning women's group at 9:30 am on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month. Join us as we continue our study of A.W. Pink's book, "The Attributes of God." If you'd like to start this study, please order the book online. Study questions are posted for download (below) every two weeks as they become available. Please contact Ruthann firstname.lastname@example.org for information or to sign up and receive study questions.
Questions will also be posted here for download as they become available.
Attributes of God has become a Christian classic in our time. Unlike other more
devotional treatments, Pink considers the biblical evidence for each of God’s
attributes and gives in-depth insight into His character and very nature. The
reader leaves each chapter both exalting God and better understanding “Him with
whom we have to do.” Attributes considered include God's decrees, knowledge,
supremacy, sovereignty, immutability, holiness, power, faithfulness, goodness,
patience, grace, mercy, love, and wrath.
Arthur W. Pink was born in Nottingham, England in 1886, and born again of the Spirit of God in 1908. He studied at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, USA, and pastored churches in Colorado, California, Kentucky, South Carolina, and Sidney, Australia. In 1934, He returned to his native land, England, and in 1940 took up permanent residence on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland, remaining there until his death twelve years later in 1952.
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 email@example.com.
