Women’s Retreat

Every winter we retreat to the Santa Cruz mountains for fellowship, worship, Bible teaching, rest, and lots of fun. 

Want to hear great teaching by some great women?

PBC is blessed with many gifted women teachers. We even have our own library of recordings you can listen to whenever you like. If you can’t make it to one of our studies, you can always join in the learning virtually. Check it out!
