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.

In the Shelter of God’s Promises

by Sheila Walsh
Gifted Bible teacher and inspiring Women of Faith speaker Sheila Walsh searches Scripture for what God has promised us, what God’s promises mean, and how encounters with Christ are the eternal fulfillment of His unrelenting commitment to us. 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.

This 20-week study led by Jane Peden begins on September 6 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.

Comparison Trap

by Sandra Stanley & Charles 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. This 4-week video study led by Kellie Herlong will begin Tuesday mornings starting on September 11. If interested, contact Kellie at kelliewherlong@gmail.com.

Fellowship Opportunities

B-Street Annual Women’s Retreat

Each February, B-Street Women hosts a weekend-long “off-campus” retreat with guest speaker, worship leader, small group activities, soaking prayer and additional incredible ways to grow closer to the Lord. For more information on the 2019 B-Street Women’s Retreat, contact Jamie Prince (email).

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.

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. Meetings have childcare provided in a loving environment through our MOPS Kids program. MOPS is an opportunity for mothers of children from birth to Kindergarten to be encouraged and supported by other moms in this incredibly rewarding yet infinitely challenging season of life.

You do not need to be a member of the church to join – MOPS is open to all mothers of small children regardless of their religious beliefs. To learn more about MOPS, visit our landing page, or contact Anastashia Lovell.
