Presbyterian Women

Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves:
• To nurture our faith through prayer and Bible study  • To support the mission of the church worldwide
• To work for justice and peace, and  • To build an inclusive, caring community of women that strengthens
the Presbyterian Church (USA) and witnesses to the promise of God’s kingdom.

Who and What We Are

PW = fellowship, friendship and mission opportunities...

Who is a “Presbyterian Woman” ?  Every Woman who attends our church is a Presbyterian Woman.
What is “Presbyterian Women” ?  We are a very welcoming, friendly group—you don’t have to “join”.


 We have “Gatherings/Salad Luncheons” 4 times a year: October, December, March, and May.
We enjoy friendship, food and a short program.


Our “Small Groups for Women” (Circles) meet 4 times a year in November, January, February and April for fellowship and Bible study.


We really get to know each other—and build special relationships as we meet throughout the year. We are true “Sisters in Christ.”
