Women, welcome to HopePointe! Please read below about different opportunities available to you.
“By the Stream”
“By the Stream” offers times and places for women to pray, study, and encourage one another,
sharing wisdom, laughter, tears, and our stories, seeking together who we are in Christ and
living more fully into that reality. Come as you are and experience refreshment in the midst of
“family,” big sisters and little sisters, locking hands together and sharing in the journey.
The FIRST THURSDAY of each month is our Bible Study night. We gather in the HopePointe
Sanctuary, 7-8:30 pm. This fall we will be learning from the lives of some of the women of the
New Testament. Each study stands alone, so no worries if you miss one or two along the way.
We also enjoy light snacks. Childcare is provided upon request. Please request from Amanda Poole firstname.lastname@example.org .
The THIRD THURSDAY of each month is our Story night. We gather in someone’s home, 7-8:30
pm, for sweet fellowship and the opportunity to hear the stories of each other’s lives, building
relationships, encouraging one another, and experiencing refreshment for the soul. We also
enjoy light snacks. Childcare is provided upon request. Please request from Amanda Poole email@example.com .

Thursday Morning Ladies’ Bible Study
New Ladies Bible Study begins February 8th!
Join us weekly on Thursday mornings, 9:30-11:00, in the HopePointe Sanctuary, as we discuss Dr. J.I. Packer's classic book, Knowing God. In 2006, Christianity Today voted this title one of the top 50 books that have shaped evangelical Christians. Stemming from Packer's profound theological and biblical knowledge, Knowing God brings together two important facets of the Christian faith---knowing about God and also knowing God through the context of a close relationship with the person of Jesus Christ. Each person is responsible for ordering her own book.
