Presbyterian Women (PW) 

Meet, pray and act together in the shared love of God!

    We affirm that we are forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit.  We have committed ourselves to building an inclusive caring community of women that strengthens the Presbyterian Church (USA), to witnesses to the promise of God's kingdom,and to transforming lives around the world.

Circles

    Groups of Presbyterian Women and their friends, called Circles, gather monthly September-May in both day and night sessions. Circle 1 members, the Home Circle, are unable to attend meetings away from their residence. These home-bound participants are visited and nurtured each month by members of the other six circles.     


    All Circles support the mission of the church worldwide and work for justice and peace through local and global missions. 

    Never attended a Circle?  Now is the time!  All are welcome to come!  Contact the church office for info 910-739-7581 x 3
