Open to all women of the church, Presbyterian Women, usually abbreviated to PW, meets once a month. They sponsor an annual holiday bazaar and two rummage sales. They have three social "gatherings" each year; these are held in the spring, fall, and during the Christmas holidy. This group is responsible for holding funeral dinners as needed, keeping the kitchen clean and organized, and are in charge of our church library. Each year, PW chooses one or more women to be honored for their dedicated service to the church. PW uses the money it raises to help fund various actitivites in the church as well as giving to local charities. "The ladies are loads of fun,” say members. “When we get together to do something, it never seems like work. It's way too much fun."
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 peace, and
- to build an inclusive, caring community of women that strengthens the presbyterian Church (U.S.A) and witness to the promise of God's kingdom.
