Presbyterian Women 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 on the Church worldwide.

·         To work for justice and peace, and,

·         To build an inclusive, caring community of women that strengthens the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and witnesses to the promise of God's kingdom.

 

When a woman joins our Church, she is invited and placed into one of our active five Circles whose activities are coordinated by the Presbyterian Women's Coordinating Team that is made up of members from each of the individual circles. These Circles meet monthly for Bible Study and participate in an inclusive, caring community of women. The circles also meet collectively and regularly for announced programs, projects, and workdays. Each woman in the congregation is encouraged to choose a circle based on her schedule and interests. Presbyterian Women operates on its own budget. Each woman is encouraged to contribute to the work of Presbyterian Women over and above her regular church pledge.

 

Circles provide nurture through Bible Study and fellowship and to provide care in times of need as bereavement ministry, prayer chain, flowers and visitation, home circle care, hosting various receptions, recognition of newborns, recognition of graduating seniors and care packages for college students. Presbyterian Women Gatherings are scheduled throughout the year and include programs highlighting the Horizon's Bible Study, Mission Workdays, Christmas Social, and Observances of the Presbyterian Women's Thank Offering and Birthday Offering.

 

Prayer Shawl Ministry

 

Shawls are being made by a number of the women "fondly" called the "knitwits! These shawls will be given to those in need of a little warmth. If you are interested in learning or just want to join the group to knit or crochet, come be a part of the fellowship. The women meet each Monday morning at 11:00 am in the parlor to knit, crochet, and chitchat. If you know of someone in need of one of the shawls, contact any member of the group or call the church office 903-984-1502.
