Membership in Presbyterian Women is open to all women. We hope you will find here a means to nurture your faith through prayer and Bible study, support the mission of the church worldwide, work for justice and peace, and experience fellowship among a caring community of friends. It is a great way to meet other women in the church.
We invite you to participate in a circle (…visit several) or attend any of our scheduled events (gatherings) as they are announced. Our circles meet once a month from September through May in a variety of places but always at the same times:
In addition there is a Mission Sewing Group that meets year round (including June, July and August) in the Activities Room every first, third, fourth and occasionally fifth Wednesday of the month at 9:30 a.m.
New circles may be formed at any time. If you have a group of friends who would like to get organized, we would be glad to assist you. Please call the church office for more information.
There's always room for you!
