Learn. Fellowship. Serve.



Starts Sept 16 – Registration Open!

Are you looking for a group of other women to study the Bible, connect and pray with? Women’s Connection is a weekly event for women to connect with the Lord and each other. Women’s Connection starts on September 16th and this fall we are studying the book of Mark using this Bible Study GuideWe have two opportunities for you to choose from:

1. Thursday Morning Gathering & Small Groups: 

We will meet in-person for our large group gathering on the PBC side patio from 9:30-10:30am followed by small groups from 10:30-11:30am at various locations on campus. We do offer childcare during Women’s Connection on Thursday mornings. If you would like to sign up for childcare, please fill out the child registration in addition to the Thursday morning group registration when you register.

2. Evening Group: 

We also have a Women’s Connection Wednesday Evening Zoom Group from 7pm – 8:30pm for those that cannot attend the Thursday morning program. The evening group will follow the same study guide as our Thursday morning group. If you are interested in the Wednesday evening group, please select that attendee type on your registration form. We are also hoping to offer an in-person evening group at some point, but are still sorting out the details. Please let us know on your registration if you would be interested in an in-person evening group and we will follow up with you when there is more info.

Covid Considerations

For the fall, our large group time on Thursday mornings will be outside on the side patio and we will follow current covid guidelines. We have groups meeting outside, inside, and on zoom (evening group). You can specify your preference in the registration form


December 5th | 2pm – 4pm 

Join us as we make wreaths together with fresh greenery, ribbon, and some holiday cheer! Come enjoy the hot cocoa and apple cider bar, snacks, Christmas music, and fellowship. Feel free to invite a friend! 


February 5th – 6th, 2022

Do you feel like you’ve just got done running a marathon, but now you still have to run a 5K? We’ve all endured hard times for such a long period and despite our exhaustion we need to turn to God for hope.

Let’s gather together and learn what it means to pursue hope. During this weekend we’re going to dive deep into what hope means in Romans 5:1-5.

We are so excited to be heading back to Mission Springs for our annual Women’s Retreat. Registration to open soon!



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 3:30 – 4:30pm.  More info HERE.


Readers unite every other month online to discuss good books. We meet on the 3rd Thursday of the month at 12pm. See our schedule below. For more info and contact the leader for the zoom link click HERE.
