Women's Ministry

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

January, 2020 will begin with a study titled, "Joshua: Every Good Promise Fulfilled" by Jen Wilkin.  Starting Tuesday, January 7, we'll meet every other Tuesday evening from 7:00 - 8:30 pm over eleven sessions, taking us through May 26, 2020.


The format for this study will consist of a workbook with questions to do on your own, small group discussion in our Tuesday meeetings, and finally, audio teachings by Jen Wilkin.  Consistent with the Bible study approach we've enjoyed in other studies by Wilkin, we'll begin by placing our text in its historical and cultural context. Then we'll read through the entire text  repetitively so that we might move through three critical stages of understanding: comprehension (what does it say?), interpretation (what does it mean?) and application (how should it change me?). 


Watch for the sign-up sheet at the Information Booth, or email info@pacifichope.com for more information.  Hope to see you in 2020!

Women's Wednesday Morning Study

Our Wednesday morning women's group meets at 9:00 am on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month and will begin another book by Sinclair Ferguson in the "Let's Study" series as we explore the book of James. Come join us for this new study beginning October 9.  For more information, please email info@pacifichope.com.


Book Description

Throughout the centuries, the Letter of James has proved to be an excellent refresher course in what it means to live the Christian life. It is only a few pages long. It can be read out loud in twenty minutes. It is very direct and extremely practical.  Several themes run through the Letter of James and make clear what his burden is. He writes about suffering and joy, riches and poverty, faith and works, the tongue and speech, and about wisdom and folly. In a word, he writes about the heart and life of the Christian believer.

 

James’s bête noire is false and hollow piety; pious platitudes are anathema to him. Faith that does not issue in good works, a holy life, concern for the needy, and a disciplined use of the tongue, is for James no faith at all.


                                                                                                                                                                                                              

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.
