Women

As a women’s ministry, we specifically aim to give opportunities for women to grow in their faith in Christ so that their daily lives are impacted. We also want to equip others to use their gifts to make an impact for the kingdom. How is this done? We offer weekly Bible Studies, opportunities for discipleship, times for fellowship and fun, and an annual retreat.

 

Bible Study

The women of AVPC have several opportunities throughout the week to meet and study God’s word together. Study topics change every spring, summer, and fall. If you have questions, contact Amy MacCaughelty (amy.cmac6@gmail.com)

Regular Fellowship Activities 

Women’s Luncheons

We believe a lot of good things happen around the table. Throughout the year, we gather in small groups of 6-8 women to enjoy food and conversation. This is a wonderful time for every woman, from new attenders to seasoned members, to get to know each other on a deeper level. In the fall, all the women come together for our church-wide fall luncheon in the Fellowship Hall.

 

Women’s Retreat

Our retreat team makes it a priority to plan a retreat each year that provides gospel-centered relationship building and an extended time of fellowship in a relaxed environment. Typically held in the spring – dates vary, so watch the bulletin for announcements.

 

Hosting baby showers for expectant mothers

As a covenant body, we want to encourage new mothers with a word of encouragement and time of prayer. In lieu of gifts, we collect a cash gift to be given to each mother. 

 

Men

Altadena Valley’s Men’s Ministry believes God calls men to be leaders in their homes, church, workplace and community, so we intentionally provide men opportunities to be challenged and even pushed forward into their roles as servant leaders and ambassadors of the Kingdom of Christ. 

 

We believe a vibrant love for Christ and a proper understanding of the Gospel will yield the following fruit in men’s lives:

  • A growing intimacy with Christ so he can shepherd, nurture and protect his family
  • A life characterized by meeting the needs of others 
  • A developing core of committed and supportive friends
  • A pro-active interface with the world around him
  • A growing confidence and competency in sharing the gospel in the workplace
  • A desire to convey the work of Christ in his own life to other men
