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!


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.

Bible Study

Bible studies are offered throughout the year, both on and off campus, led by B-Street Women. Studies are open to members, visitors and friends. Current offerings may be seen below.

Fragile Stone

Led by Jane Peden, this video study by Michael Card meets 10:00 -11:30 AM Thursdays in Room 217 of the downtown campus. Study dates are: May 23, June 6, June 13, June 20, July 11, July 18, July 25, and August 1.

About this study: As much as we enjoy our relationship with Jesus Christ, imagine what it would have been like to take that a step further and be His friend when He was here on earth! The apostle Peter had that special opportunity. Michael Card traveled to Israel to walk us through the friendship between our Savior and the man Jesus renamed The Rock. In a special video presentation based on the RBC Ministries television program Day of Discovery, you’ll travel with Michael as he visits the places where Jesus and Peter interacted. You’ll listen as Card reveals the intricacies of their friendship. And then you’ll have the opportunity to discuss what you observed in order to make the teaching of Michael’s lessons applicable to your own life. Travel with Michael Card as he explores the friendship of Jesus and Peter in eight lessons. Childcare provided. Contact Jane Peden (email)

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 2020 B-Street Women’s Retreat, contact Julie Wallace (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. Contact Julia Morgan (email)

Ministry to Singles:

Single women of all ages are invited and encouraged to join us for the inaugural events of this new B-Street Women ministry. Our prayer is that these events will catch on and become a blessing to all of the single women of Buncombe Street.

Single Women Together (SWT)

Join us as we lunch among the beautiful artwork of the Shell Gallery in the Truluck room at the Downtown Campus on the first Sunday of each month from 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM to get to know each other a little better. This time of fun and fellowship includes lunch and childcare at no cost. Potential SWT events include speakers, testimonies, and service projects. This event is for single women of all ages. Email Cathy Musselwhite to register for the next SWT.

Girls Night Out (GNO)

This night is all about fun! Come hang out with the girls for some downtime and great conversation. We will try a different restaurant on the third Friday of each month at 6:00 PM, so let us know if you have a favorite spot, and we will add it to our list. This event is open to single women of all ages. Email Cathy Musselwhite to register for GNO.

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 their landing page, or contact Anastashia Cooper (email)
