2022 Women's Retreat

We're looking forward to seeing you July 8-10, 2022 at the Ayres Laguna Woods!  Check-in begins at 4:30 pm on Friday, July 8. If you are registered, your confirmation and retreat information were e-mailed to you. We regret that registration is now closed.


Our theme, "I Am Weak, but He Is Strong," is a reminder of Christ's promises through the Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 12:9-10:

"He said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.'  Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.  For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities.  For when I am weak, then I am strong."


Join us as we come together and explore what God says about His purposes and promises in our suffering.  We know you will be encouraged in the hope we have as we abide in Christ’s grace and power. 

                                                                                                                                                

Summer News and Updates

Both Tuesday and Wednesday Women's Studies are currently on break for the remainder of the summer, having finished a 12-session study of  Psalms  by Douglas Sean O’Donnell, edited by J.I. Packer. 


Watch here for news on the studies starting in September!

                                                                                                                                                 


Book Description:

"The book of Psalms powerfully resonates with the whole spectrum of human emotions and experiences, resounding with heartfelt praise, humble confession, and honest lament. Plumbing the theological depths, this guide explains the biblical text with clarity and passion—exploring the Bible’s ability to transform our emotions and incline our hearts toward worship."


Over the course of 12 chapters, each study asks thoughtful questions to spur discussion. Showing how each passage unveils the gospel, the text is tied in with the whole story of Scripture and illuminates the doctrines taught in each passage, inviting you to discover practical implications and help you better understand and apply God’s Word.


Douglas Sean O'Donnell is the Senior VP of Bible Publishing at Crossway Books. He has authored or edited over a dozen books, including commentaries on the Gospel of Matthew, the Song of Songs, Job, Ecclesiastes, and 1-3 John. He earned his PhD from the University of Aberdeen.

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).
