Presbyterian Women (PW) is a church-wide organization whose membership is open to all women. Presbyterian Women members are those who choose to participate in or be supportive of Presbyterian Women in any way. PW intentionally seeks the membership of women from all racial and ethnic groups so that the organization may reflect a vision of the whole church as a community of mutual interdependence in which diversity contributes to wholeness.
What’s the purpose of 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.
Presbyterian Women Circles
Circles are small groups that gather regularly to provide an inclusive, caring community of women. Each circle is an integral part of PW and is encouraged to use PW resources to strengthen this connection.
A circle is where
- Faith is nurtured and growth takes place through worship, study, fellowship, and outreach
- Women are challenged to stretch beyond their limits
- Women move beyond the safe places of life, reaching out to others
- Christian leadership is born, nurtured, and sent forth into ministry
Circle Meetings are held monthly in the Parlor
- Day Circle . . . 2nd Monday @ 9:30 am (childcare is provided)
- Night Circle . . . 2nd Monday @ 7:30 pm
- Day Circle . . . 2nd Tuesday at 9:30 am
2016-2017 Bible Study
Who is Jesus? What a Difference a Lens Makes by Judy Yates Siker
Each of the study’s nine lessons explores the question, “Who is Jesus?”, through a particular theological lens. The lenses include Mark, Matthew, Luke, John, Paul, Hebrews, the non-canonical gospels, the Abrahamic Faiths, and contemporary cultural interpretations. The author notes that each reader is also an interpreter of the text and that how we interpret depends in part on who we are and where we are in our faith journey. Together, we will seek new answers and confirm former understandings.
