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 at 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.

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 last week of March. The group will meet in Room 217 of the Downtown Campus from 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM. Childcare provided. Contact Jane Peden (email)

The Faithful: Heroes of the Old Testament

Borrowing from best-selling studies by Beth Moore, Priscilla Shirer, Lisa Harper, Kelly Minter, and Jennifer Rothschild, this 5-session study explores crucial moments in the lives of five Old Testament figures Esther, Gideon, Malachi, Nehemiah, and Hosea. Through their stories, discover how God uses the lives of ordinary people for His glory and the good of His people. Strengthen your faith as you walk alongside these larger-than-life figures who all chose to obey God no matter the circumstances.  This study is led by April Stambaugh and meets twice a month on Thursdays.  The dates are March 7 & 21, April 4 &25, and May 9.  Room 215, Downtown Campus 10:00 AM-11:30 AM.  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.
