Presbyterian Women

Presbyterian Women

The Purpose: 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!

Presbyterian Women = 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.”

Gatherings - We have “Gatherings/Salad Luncheons” 4 times a year in October, December, March, and May.  Everyone is invited to “Gather Together” to enjoy friendship, food and a short program. Refer to our Calendar of Events for details.

Circles - Our “Small Groups for Women” (Circles) meet 4 times a year in November, January, February and April for fellowship and Bible study. Refer to our Calendar of Events for details.

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