Pillars Women's Ministry

Why The Name Pillars?

In examining this scripture, we have been struck by the significance of a corner pillar.  A corner pillar is historically both lovely and functional.  It is vital to the entire structure and is intended to bring glory to something greater than itself.  In addition, we are each vital in our homes, families, and church community. We desire that all the women of Portico grow in their relationship with the Lord and function with the grace and beauty of a corner pillar.  It is with this in mind our women’s ministry is called Pillars.

Because we seek to follow Christ and grow closer to Him, we look to John 1:14, “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” We wish to be filled with His grace and truth as we fellowship and study the Word together.

Fall 2019 Bible Study

No Other Gods: The Unrivaled Pursuit of Christ by Kelly Minter

Often, idols are obvious—money, power, fame. But subtler idols can sometimes take the form of sweet loved ones, Instagramable interiors, and busy seasons of ministry. But if your heart is prioritizing any of those pursuits before God, they are taking up space meant for Him alone. In this 8-session study, learn to identify the functional gods you are serving daily and the lies they tell. Only when you learn to dethrone modern-day idols can you pursue a deeper, more meaningful relationship with Jesus.
