Learn. Fellowship. Serve.



 May 15th | 9am-2pm

As we emerge from winter into spring, from shelter in place to more interactions outside our homes, we look not to the signals the world is giving us for change, but to what God is doing. Join us for a half day retreat outside on the PBC campus on Saturday, May 15th, 2021 from 9 am to 2 pm. We’ll be providing a place for friendships, for worship, and for ways to connect with God. Join us as we explore ways to pray, to listen, and to wait for God to do His good work in our hearts. Hold the date and look for more details to come. MORE DETAILS & REGISTRATION HERE


It was good to see all of you who could attend our Taking Time to Tune-In Event on 2/4. Click the link below to watch the recorded event, listen to the worship songs, read the prayer, as well as explore a bonus meditation. We invite those of you who could not attend or those who want to watch it again to spend some time “coming to the waters” to connect with Christ and ourselves. VIDEO & BONUS MATERIAL


Women’s Connection is a weekly event for women to connect with the Lord and each other. We are excited to dive into the book of Ruth together. We will spend time in a large group setting (on Zoom) and in small groups at various times throughout the week (in person and online). 


We will be meeting Thursdays at 9:30am for about 20 minutes on Zoom so we can connect as a large group and hear a short teaching. The teachings will be recorded and available to small groups that cannot attend Thursday Mornings. Contact [email protected] to get the link to the recordings. JOIN MEETING


Most groups meet online, some a mix of online and in-person (weather and county restrictions permitting). If you are interested in joining a group, please REGISTER HERE.


For the winter, we will be following a curriculum on the Book of Ruth by Eugene Peterson. Since this curriculum uses a paraphrase of the Bible, we have ESV handouts as well. Use these handouts or your Bible of choice to dig into the text as we study together!

If you don’t have time to dive in to the full passage in this season of life, spend time reflecting on the weekly verse, praying, and pondering God’s words. Intro to the Book of Ruth

NEW! This group is an opportunity for women to come together to support each other and grow in community through a weekly check-in and prayer. All ages and stages welcome! Group meets online every Tuesday from 3-4pm.  More info HERE.


This is an evening group geared towards women and moms who work outside of the home (when we’re not in SIP) who desire connection and bible study. Group meets online every Thursday evening at 8:30pm alternating a week of bible study and catching up.  More info HERE.
