Sunday School Communities

Meets on Sunday mornings, from 9:45- 10:45 AM.


At Altadena, our Sunday School classes operate in a community format consisting of four “mini-congregations.” While teachers and topics may rotate, the communities stay together over time. To learn more, click here.

Women’s Ministry

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. We offer weekly Bible Studies, opportunities for discipleship, times for fellowship and fun, and an annual retreat. If you’d like to know more about the women’s ministry, contact Heather at

  • 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. 
  • Bible Studies
    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. The summer studies begin the week of June 3, and we will be studying prayer. If you have any questions, contact Amy MacCaughelty (
