Women

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.

B-Street Women’s Retreat (Postponed due to Covid-19.)

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. Sadly, the retreat will not take place at Lake Junaluska in 2021.

Location: Lake Junaluska

Spring Dinner and Christmas Luncheon (Stay tuned for Covid-19 updates for Spring Dinner.)

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.

Location: Sisk Hall (Downtown Campus)

Seasonal Socials (On-hold due to Covid-19.)

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.

Location: Individual Homes

Nan Ivester Community Group (On-hold due to Covid-19.)

This group enjoys a social “catch up with friends” from 9:30 to 10:00 AM, with a program beginning at 10:00 AM, every second Tuesday of the month, September-May.

Sunday Night Women’s Community Group (On-hold due to Covid-19.)

This group meets weekly at the Downtown Campus on  Sunday Nights during the school year when their children are attending the Sprouts Children’s Program. This discussion group will always begin with “Where did you see God this week?” and segue into a discussion on a pre-selected topic that is emailed out early in the week. Participants may bring text excerpts, video clips, scriptures, thoughts/ideas to add to the discussion. We hope you will join the Sunday Night Women’s Community Group when we are able to meet at the Downtown Campus again.

Location: Room 214, Downtown Campus
Contact: Erin Mercer and Lindsay Boore

MOPS (Mothers of Pre Schoolers) (Currently meeting via Zoom)

Buncombe Street MOPS typically meets on the first and third Mondays of the month during the school year at the Downtown Campus, 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 their landing page.
