Welcome

Welcome from the Women's Ministry Director

Dear Reader,

Have you ever been served a beautiful and lovely meal? You may have walked into a room lit with candles and seen a table covered with several lovely and nutritious dishes. You probably sat down feeling welcomed, pampered and thought of as you enjoyed things that were created just for you.

In Women’s Ministry, we are seeking to offer ministries that will feed your soul as well as bring a smile to your face. Honestly, we are still cooking and creating dishes that we hope will be a great blessing to your life. If you have ideas, please do not hesitate to let me know. There are never too many cooks in this kitchen.

Check out our offerings and if you have questions call the church at 770-448-1313 and ask for Women’s Ministry.

The only thing that will truly satisfy your soul’s appetite is a relationship with Jesus Christ. His love is filling, warming and our lives cannot be healthy without Him.

In Jesus’ Love,

Julie White

Mentoring

Women to Women Mentoring: All Stages, All Ages

Titus chapter two tells the older women of the church to influence the younger women. Our church is rich with a variety of ages. We have older and younger women and many somewhere in between. These Mentor Groups give single and married women a chance to meet every other week to grow. The curriculum is usually light in order to focus on life application and discussion. Dear friendships are being forged in thiese confidential groups. Periodically the groups re-launch and welcome new members.

When new groups start, they begin with a 24 hour retreat to help members go deeper in bonding than what can happen in a 2 hour meeting.

If you have an interest in joining a group or being trained to be a Mentor, please contact Julie White at fountainolife@gmail.com.

Godly Girlfriend Groups

Godly Girlfriend Groups

Our kick off for the 2014 Godly Girlfriend Groups is Sunday, May 4, 2014!!!

Ladies - in the summer we still like to get together, but we know schedules can be crazy! We have created Godly Girlfriend Groups as a way to get together and enjoy "girl time" at your convenience over the summer. Listed below are several groups that we have had in the past. Join one, join two, join them ALL! So many different choices and women to meet. Most are set up so you can "come and go" as you please. Browse the descriptions below and if one seems like your cup of tea. Information will be available in the Spring for groups that will be forming and ways to sign up! Stay tuned for information at the Women's Minsitry desk, in the bulletin and on Facebook.

Antie-cuties

Lunching, antiquing, collecting, and shopping make for fun times and special trips. If you are interested in antiquing or decorating on a budget, you will be introduced to fun and thrifty places to shop for great treasures.

Steppin’ Sisters

How about less flab and more gab? Step out with other girlfriends who enjoy walking for exercise and fresh air. Experience encouragement over the pavement!

In the past groups have walked in Fowler Park at least twice a month on Monday nights but possibly every week, depending on schedules.

ChicKnits

Get your knitting needles and yarn ready. We will meet once a week on Tuesday’s or Wednesday’s. No experience necessary! Come join and learn or help others in the process.

For our first project will make washcloths/dishrags. Please bring size 5, 6, or 7 knitting needles and relatively thin yarn (cotton or something absorbent). If you are an experienced knitter, come work on any project of your choosing and lend a helping hand to our beginners!

LOVEable NETsters

Net some new godly girlfriends at the tennis courts this summer. Bring your racquet and we’ll have some fun. We may play at East Roswell Park or at Rivermont.

Alley Cats

Dust off that ball, get out those shoes, warm up that arm, and join some godly girlfriends at the bowling alley. What fun you’ll have as you roll the ball and roll in laughter. Make some fun memories! We’ll bowl twice a month on Thursdays 7-9PM at Brunswick Zone (Holcomb Bridge and Spalding)

Estimated cost: $10/night. Group rate will be available when we have more exact numbers.

Moms at the Park

Bring the little ones to the park and join other moms as you enjoy the sunshine and friends on the playground. Your children will make a few friends as well! The First and Third Monday of every week. We will meet from 10:00am to 11:30am in Historic Norcross at Thrasher Park.

1 Park Drive, Norcross, GA 30071.

No group on VBS week!

Shutter Bugs

Come; let’s journey together along the path of capturing God’s beauty with our cameras. Everywhere you look there is something worthy of recording; nature, people, places and things. Let’s get together this summer and find those things and learn more about each other and photography. I have a passion to see things the way that God sees them and I am learning daily about Him, the world, and how to use my camera to glorify him. We can find locations nearby and venture further afield to explore the beauty just waiting for us. We can learn from each other, practice different aspects of photography and grow twice a month or more often if the passion is there. I am available Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, so let’s put our heads together and come up with a calendar and locations that works for all of us. Feel free to bring friends to join us.

Possible locations: Norcross City Parks, Goat Farm, Yellow River Game, Local River Parks, Capital Area, Atlanta Botanical Gardens, Grant Park, Zoo Atlanta, Gibbs Garden, Little 5 Points, Pine Mtn Safari, Sunflower Farm and/or Norcross Houses/Bldgs.

Please note that you do not have to have a fancy camera to have fun and learn. What we will be learning applies to all cameras, it is about how we see (light & shadows) and telling a story/message (composition) with our photos…and Most importantly: Having Fun together!

Group leader: Pearl Brown 770-380-0979 or pearlsfinds@gmail.com

We love to get together and study God's word. We have several opportunities throughout the week Tuesday mornings, Tuesday evenings and Wednesday evenings. Check back in the Fall, Winter and Spring for new studies. New studies are listed below:

Tuesday 10:00AM: We are two 6 week studies beginning Tuesday, March 18. The semester will include one service day and one special speaker. Special days include a shared Breakfast. Childcare available.

Sacred Secrets by Beth Moore. The world is obsessed with telling secrets for the sake of sensationalism. But not all hidden things are poisonous and dark. Sacred Secrets is the new 6-session study from Beth Moore that explores secrets: some forgiven, some covered, and some just between you and God. Join Beth to find out what happens when we let God teach us "wisdom in the secret heart" (Psalm 51:6 , ESV).

Ladies Retreat

Ladies Retreat

Some years PCBC Women’s Ministry offers all ladies a chance to attend a retreat that we create ourselves. It generally involves sleeping at a retreat center and hearing great Biblical teaching. It is a great way to meet new ladies and develop deeper friendships.

In other years, PCBC Women’s Ministry identifies great retreats being sponsored by local or national ministries. We take a group of women to those retreats and enjoy learning with a much larger group. Some times these events are overnight and sometimes they are half-day conferences.

In 2014, we are inviting all women to join us at Callaway Gardens for the WEM Spring Retreat which begins Friday, April 25th at 10am and concludes on Saturday afternoon, April 26th at 3pm. The main speaker is Jennifer Kennedy Dean who will speak on living a life of prayer. Another key note speaker is Mary Jo Sharp who helps us defend our faith with books like Why do you believe that? The music is by Babbie Mason. This retreat will offer a time of refreshment and learning in a beautiful environment. There are lots of helpful breakout sessions and opportunities to gather as a church group to hear what others are learning.

Stay tuned for further details on this site and in the church bulletin. Contact Julie White with questions: fountainolife@gmail.com


Here is the website link for some details. However, please sign up at church as we may receive a group discount.

Christmas Around The Table

Christmas Around The Table

For the past two years we have offered ladies a chance to gather a couple of weeks before Christmas Day. This event usually take place on a Sunday evening. The table hostesses choose their own style of decorating which makes for very festive and interesting table designs. Besides a lovely room, we enjoy delicious food that is usually catered. As we sit with our friends, coworkers or neighbors, we have a Christ focused program where we hear about the true meaning of Christmas in word and song.

Outreach and Service

Outreach and Service

The Women's Ministry is a ministry designed to enrich the lives of women in our community, not just the women at Peachtree Corners Baptist Church. Our desire is to challenge each other to look beyond ourselves to see the needs of others, whether it's in our own community or around the world.
  • You can get involved by supporting our efforts at Peachtree Elementary through our Tuesday morning workdays at the school, donations of school supplies, and other ways.
  • Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan's Purse, a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. Operation Christmas Child has shared the Good News of God's love with hurting children through the simplest of gifts—shoe boxes! Filled with school supplies, toys, and personal items that are packed by caring people, these boxes help introduce children to Jesus Christ. You can get involved by filling a shoebox or by joining the Women's Ministry as we help sort and prep the shoe boxes at the local distribution warehouse. This activity will take place in late November/early December.
  • We partner with various apartment ministries to provide support and to help host activities throughout the year.

For more information on how you can get involved, please contact the Women's Ministry at x2445 or email.

Inclement Weather Policy

The Women's Ministry's Inclement Weather Policy

For activities that take place during the day such as Tuesday morning Bible study, we follow Gwinnett County's schedule. So, if Gwinnett schools are closed, we will not be having Bible study that day. We will also try to post something on the WM's Facebook page and on the WM's homepage.

For evening activities, we will make a decision and try to let people know by 4 PM on the day of the event. We will post a notification WM's Facebook page and on the WM's homepage.
