Whether you are new to North Avenue, a longtime member, or somewhere in between, it is our deep desire in Women’s Ministry at NAPC to know you! If you are feeling the need for fellowship, support or encouragement, Bible study or prayer, or would like an opportunity to serve the Lord with others, we’d love to walk alongside you as the body of Christ.
Contact Rev. Megan Johnson to get connected to the Women’s Ministry at North Avenue.
Women's Bible Study 2019-2020
The Book of Acts
This year in Women’s Bible Study (WBS) we will be studying the Book of Acts, also know as The Acts of The Apostles. There are two primary themes in Acts: the formation of the church and the reconciliation through Christ of Jews and Gentiles. Both of these themes seem especially relevant to our lives together in this season both as a church in transition and as a people increasingly called to lean toward a deeper understanding of reconciliation. We hope you will join us either on Wednesday evenings on Thursday mornings. The schedules for the two studies (identical material, different style) are below. Please take a moment to follow this link and register today!

PRESBYTERIAN WOMEN AT NAPC
The Presbyterian Women's organization at North Avenue is pleased to announce our program for 2019-2020. All women of the church are cordially invited to join us for Bible study and lunch.
First organized at North Avenue in the early 1900's, PW has striven through the years to meet the needs of women by nurturing faith through worship, study, fellowship and outreach, and challenging women to stretch their limits and open themselves to reach out to others. We would love for you to join us!
This year, Presbyterian Women will gather once again on the second Tuesday of each month for a combined study, followed by circle meetings and lunch. We will be examining the Spiritual Disciplines as a means of Spiritual Formation. Gatherings begin at 10:30 in The Overlook Hall, followed by Circle Meetings in 4101 and 4102. Circle leaders will collect lunch orders from members prior to each monthly meeting. Box lunches will be provided by Jason’s Deli at $10 per lunch.
"Spiritual Formation is our continuing response to the reality of God’s grace shaping us into the likeness of Jesus Christ, through the work of the Holy Spirit, in the community of faith, for the glory of God and for the sake of the world."
“In the end the point of becoming more like Christ is not that we are better people doing more good for others. In the end the point of becoming more like Christ is that God is glorified by our faithfulness. Nothing more.”
Jeffrey Greenman in “Life in the Spirit: Spiritual Formation in Theological Perspectives”
Both Circle One and Circle Two will meet together at 10:30 a.m. on the second Tuesday of every month for devotion, teaching, and fellowship. Circles will then break into two groups for discussion and lunch from Jason’s Deli (RSVP for lunch to your Circle leader each month).
