Women’s

B-Street Women is a vibrant community of Christ-centered, Christ-seeking ladies in all seasons of life, engaging in fellowship, service and study together at Buncombe Street. All women are welcome within B-Street Women!

Mission

The mission of the B-Street Women’s Ministry is to enable women of all ages to share in abundant life in Jesus Christ. We provide opportunities for enhancing spiritual life through service, missions, prayer, Bible study, education, and fellowship. Through these experiences, women will minister to each other, their families, and serve God in their daily lives.

Seamless

by Angie Smith
In seven sessions, Seamless covers the people, places, and promises of the Bible, showing participants how the entire Bible – from Genesis through Revelation – connects as one beautiful, seamless thread. Each week of study features key information that ties all of scripture together into the seamless truth of the gospel message and is accompanied by maps, general Bible facts, and word studies. This Bible Study meets on Sunday evenings from 5:30-7:00 PM in Room 115 at the Downtown Campus beginning January 27.

Comparison Trap: A 28-Day Devotional

By Sandra Stanley
The temptation to compare is as near as your next chat with a friend, trip to the store, or check-in on social media. And whether you come out on top or come up lacking, there is simply no win in comparison. It’s a trap. The Comparison Trap Devotional provides easy access to watch, read, and draw your way through this topic.

April Stambaugh will lead this study in room 215 of the Downtown Campus on Thursdays, January 10 & 24, and February 7 & 21. Contact April to register.

Everybody Always: Becoming Love in a World Full of Setbacks and Difficult People

by Bob Goff
What happens when we give away love like we’re made of it?

In his entertaining and inspiring follow-up to the New York Times bestselling phenomenon Love Does, Bob Goff takes readers on a journey into the secret of living without fear, constraint, or worry. The path toward the liberated existence we all long for is found in a truth as simple to say as it is hard to do: love people, even the difficult ones, without distinction and without limits.

Driven by Bob’s trademark storytelling, Everybody, Always reveals the lessons Bob learned–often the hard way–about what it means to love without inhibition, insecurity, or restriction. From finding the right friends to discovering the upside of failure, Everybody, Always points the way to embodying love by doing the unexpected, the intimidating, the seemingly impossible. Whether losing his shoes while skydiving solo or befriending a Ugandan witch doctor, Bob steps into life with a no-limits embrace of others that is as infectious as it is extraordinarily ordinary. Everybody, Always reveals how we can do the same.

This B-Street Women’s Bible study will meet at the home of Kellie Herlong (110 Sweetwater Court, Greer, SC  29650) on Tuesdays from 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM beginning January 15. Contact Kellie for more information.

In the Shelter of God’s Promises

This study for women was created by Sheila Walsh and explores God’s promises in the scripture. Through vulnerable storytelling, new insights, and an in-depth Bible Study, Sheila offers powerful, heart-filled teaching on ten bedrock promises of God, providing the foundation for daily confidence, joy, hope, and shelter.  Led by Jane Peden, the group will begin meeting on September 13th and will finish the first or second week of February. The group will meet in Room 217 of the Downtown Campus from 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM. If interested, contact janepeden@patmosinc.com. Childcare provided.

Women’s Retreat

Spring Dinner and Christmas Luncheon

Each Spring and Christmas season, B-Street Women invites a dynamic guest speaker to Buncombe Street and holds a seated meal for all women of Buncombe Street and their guests. These occasions connect to a mission, and while nourishing us through fellowship and the message of the speaker, also give back to the community’s needs.

Christmas Luncheon

Seasonal Socials

Twice each year, B-Street Women hosts “off-campus” social drop-ins for members and guests, simply to enjoy one another’s company and build new and deeper relationships within the body of Christ.

MOPS (Moms of Pre Schoolers)

Buncombe Street MOPS typically meets on the first and third Mondays of the month during the school year, with some breaks for holidays.
