Join us sundays at 10:45 AM

The Women’s Ministry at Parkers Lake Baptist Church seeks to uphold the church’s vision to Know God, Love God and each other, and Serve others. We support this 3-fold vision through both formal and informal women’s activities.

 

To Know God

We seek to better know our God through the serious study of his word, with emphasis on learning how we can glorify God and walk with Jesus Christ in the ways He uniquely established for womanhood.

  • Bible Study: The women of PLBC study a book of the Bible in small group format, often using a Bible Study guide. Groups meet in varying locations and times to accommodate busy schedules and differing needs, with the day group often allowing for a childcare option. We typically meet for 10 weeks in the Fall and 10 weeks in the winter/spring.  
  • Fall Retreat: This half-day event is meant to strengthen the women of PLBC in their walk with the Lord. We want to refocus our attention on knowing, loving, and serving Our Savior. The 2024 Retreat is planned for October 24 -- Save the date!
  • Book Study: Periodically the women of PLBC read and discuss books aimed at teaching us either more about God or a relevant topic of Christianity.  Recent books include: Hospitality Comes with a Housekey by Rosaria Butterfield, The Reason for God by Timothy Keller, and Women of the Word  as well as None Like Him by Jen Wilken. 

To Love God and Others

We seek to love God and others by encouraging one another through Biblical mentorship and Christ-centered community (Titus 2:3-5).

  • Ladies' Fellowship: We desire to gather women across the generations valuing the call for mentorship and encouragement.  As we share our lives and consider God's Word together, we can learn from one another and grow in love for one another and God.  Please join us monthly, Saturday mornings from 9-10am.
  • Mom’s Morning Coffee: This daytime group welcomes mothers with young children to a weekly fellowship consisting of in-home gatherings and community meet-ups--all are welcome! This group typically meets on Wednesday mornings throughout the school year. Please contact Moriah Gilbertson, office@plbc.org.
  • Spring Retreat: The annual Women's Rustic Getaway each spring provides a weekend of rest and refreshment with one another as we pray for one another and share encouraging testimonies of what the Lord has done.
  • Prayer: The women's ministry team is dedicated to praying regularly for the women of PLBC.  If you have a prayer request, please let us know directly or email office@plbc.org.

To Serve

We seek to challenge women towards a heart of service and good works motivated by our love for God, others, and our community (I Peter 4:8).

We are regularly informed of opportunities to serve the church family and our community by PLBC deaconesses. Opportunities include: making meals for new moms or sick members, prepping for a church fellowship, organizing a baby shower, or helping with a funeral.

Our deaconesses work together with the women of PLBC in promoting such opportunities for joint service in the local church. We seek to provide regular avenues of service through sharing in hospitality, lending aid to those in need, and planning church-wide events for fellowship and outreach.
