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.

Advent Bible Study For Women

Join Kellie Herlong and Andrea Creech in this 3-week study as we prepare our hearts for Advent. We will study Liz Curtis- Higgs’ book, The Women of Christmas and will meet in an Eastside home Tuesdays in November (5th, 12th, 19th) from 10:00-11:00 AM.

God Reached Down from Heaven with the Best Gift of All. A sacred season is about to unfold for three women whose hearts belong to God. Elizabeth is barren, yet her trust in God remains fertile. Mary is betrothed in marriage, yet she is willing to bear God’s Son. Anna is a widow full of years, yet she waits patiently, prayerfully for the Messiah to appear in the temple courts. Following in their footsteps, you too can prepare for the Savior to enter your heart, your mind, and your life in a vibrant, new way. Best-selling author Liz Curtis Higgs explores the biblical stories of Elizabeth, Mary, and Anna, unwrapping each verse with tender care and introducing you afresh to The Women of Christmas. Contact Kellie Herlong (email) or Andrea Creech (email) with questions.

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.

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.
