The Women’s Ministry at NAPC is a vibrant and growing community that offers opportunities to worship, study, and commune together.
Come and be part of a Circle this year. Our small groups (Circles 1, 2) meet at the church each month on the second Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. They will study 1, 2, & 3 John, 1 & 2 Peter, and Jude using the book Living Stones, the Making of an Eternal Fellowship by Becce Betteridge. Circle 3 will continue studying 2 Timothy. They meet the second and fourth Tuesdays at 10 a.m. Our faith is nurtured through Bible study, prayer, and fellowship. For more information, contact Barbara Rodriguez at (678) 395-6804.
Summer Women’s Bible Study
All women in the church are welcome to join in on a study of Barbara Brown Taylor’s “An Altar in the World.” Meeting weekly through May and then biweekly throughout June, July and August, we will gather around a new chapter, meeting in member’s homes from 7-8:30 p.m. on Wednesday evenings. The study is designed for those whose schedules are full; you can purchase the book and read along, come wholly unprepared and engage the material, or attend sporadically as your summer schedule allows. Come explore what it would look like to be more spiritually present in the “everydayness” of your life. If you are curious about how we live into Paul’s description of God as the one “in whom we live and move and have our being”, you will surely enjoy gathering together with sisters in Christ as we consider Taylor’s witness and one another’s experiences of the sacred in small spaces.
Please note: to accommodate those who have conflicts on Wednesday evenings in May, the study will ALSO meet on Thursday mornings from 10- 11:30 a.m. in Room 323 on the following days: May 9 (Reverence), 16 (Incarnation), 23 (Groundedness), and 30 (Vision).
There will not be childcare available in May on Thursday mornings.

|June 5||The Practice of Getting Lost: Wilderness|
|June 19||The Practice of Encountering Others: Community|
