Protestant Women of the Chapel enjoyed their fall 2022 Kickoff program on Sept. 6 at the Post Chapel. Over three dozen women, as well as their young children, met to start sessions under the leadership of PWOC President Amanda Bundt. 

Sue Jones led the ladies in worship before a devotion from Chaplain Hudson on the PWOC theme “Come and Seeˮ highlighting Matthew 11:28-30. With the prop of a cowboy boot, he explained God does not call us to “pull ourselves up by the bootstraps.ˮ God asks us to do quite the opposite and come to Him for help lightening our burdens since we can do nothing by ourselves.

Martha Kate Robinson, the Spiritual Life vice president, chose three book options for the Bible-based small group studies this semester: “In His Imageˮ by Jen Wilkins, “Life Change’s Jeremiah and Lamentationsˮ and “Walking with God in the Season of Motherhoodˮ by Melissa Kruger. 

Each small group study will meet at 9 a.m.  on Tuesdays after a whole group devotional, breakfast and worship. For women with evening availability, a small group studying “Life Changer’s Jeremiah and Laminationsˮ will take place at 7 p.m. Thursdays in the Post Chapel. 

The smaller setting allows for ladies to share their thoughts and lives as they pursue a closer walk with Christ. 

At the fall 2022 Kickoff program, the women chose their studies and received books. If you are interested in joining, PWOC is always open to new members throughout the year. Email wp.pwoC@gmail.com to request a book or come at 9 a.m. Tuesday or at 7 p.m. Thursday.

Programs Vice President Audra Green worked to organize the event, brightened the Fellowship Hall with sunflowers, and organized the West Point Club’s catered buffet breakfast the ladies enjoyed as they met new members and caught up with friends.

Protestant Woman of the Chapel is active at military bases around the world and provides a Christian community for military spouses and active-duty military women. Moving makes finding a community challenging, but PWOC provides a place for women to come together in Christ and make friendships that go beyond the two hours of devotions on Tuesday morning or Thursday evening study.
