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.

Priscilla Shirer – Breathe

One of the greatest challenges among women in our culture is taking time to cease from all the activities and just breathe. We are in bondage to busyness. We constantly strive to complete the limitless to-do lists that hinder us from experiencing all that God has for us. By neglecting time for tranquility, serenity, and repose, we limit our Christlikeness and miss out on some of God’s greatest gifts. In the Old Testament, Sabbath was given to the Israelites as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today. If you are weary, worn out, and exhausted, then the concept of Sabbath will change your life. Thursdays, Room 301 of the Downtown Campus. 10:00 AM – 11:30- 10/3, 10/17, 10/31,11/7, 11/21 Led by April Stambaugh. Childcare provided.

Jessica LeGrone – Broken and Blessed: 3 Different sessions of this study are being offered this fall

This study traces the story of the Genesis family from Adam and Eve through the generations to Joseph, bringing blessing from brokenness. We will see that despite both good and bad traits that were passed down, God worked for good in every generation—determined to transform those within and outside the family bloodlines. The study ends with the story of Joseph, who decided to stop the cycle of previous generations, offering forgiveness and grace to his brothers. Through these stories of Genesis, New Testament teaching about family, and stories of contemporary families changed and used by God, this study shows us how God can use our own imperfect families to bring blessing in a hurting and broken world.

  • A Powdersville/Easley study led by Vicki Wells. Day of the week and time of day would be determined by those signed up for the Bible Study.
  • Tuesdays, 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM at an Eastside area home from 9/10-10/15. Led by Andrea Creech and Kellie Herlong.
  • Wednesdays, 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM Fellowship Hall at the Trinity Campus from 9/11-10/16. Led by Rosie Gaddy and Dottie Pittman.

Beth Moore – The Quest

In this six-week excursion with Jesus, Beth Moore uses questions from Scripture to lead you into intimacy with the One who knows you best. Learn to dig into the Word, to respond to the questions of God, and to bring your questions before Him.

Led by Sandy MacMillan and Lisa Hill.

Rob Bell –  Love Wins

This group meets during the school year while their children are at Sprouts on Sunday nights in Room 214 at the Downtown Campus. (5:50 PM – 7:15 PM) for fellowship and discussion. Childcare provided. Beginning 9/8, we will read Love Wins by Rob Bell. This study addresses one of the most controversial issues of faith—hell and the afterlife—arguing, would a loving God send people to eternal torment forever? With searing insight, Bell puts hell on trial with a hopeful message—eternal life doesn’t start when we die; it starts right now. And ultimately, Love Wins.  Led by Lindsey Boore and Erin Mercer.

Melissa Spoelstra –  Elijah: Spiritual Stamina in Every Season

Life is like a roller coaster. One day it seems that everything in life is good, and the next day it can feel like everything is falling apart. Then there are those in-between days when we’re coasting along without much thought to the highs or lows. The prophet Elijah experienced this roller coaster ride as well.  In this six-week study grounded in 1 and 2 Kings, we will examine the life of the prophet Elijah, an ordinary man who did extraordinary things for God in the midst of the highs and lows of life. We’ll learn some of the spiritual stamina secrets that helped him to hold on and persevere in faith, including practical habits related to making decisions, caring for the soul, accepting his circumstances, mentoring, and finishing well—which was his ultimate legacy. Thursdays, 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM Room 217 of the Downtown Campus.  Contact Jane Peden for more information and to register.

Fellowship Opportunities

BStreet 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. This year the retreat will take place at Lake Junaluska Feb 21-23. The theme is “Live Life Anchored.” For more information on the 2020 B-Street Women’s Retreat, click HERE and/or 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)
