Presbyterian Women News for September 2017

Presbyterian Women are guided by a shared 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 of 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.

Our local PW circles contribute to the Mission Pledge (PW’s annual fund), making possible the ongoing mission and ministry of Presbyterian Women. Your gift enables Presbyterian Women to strengthen the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) in the U.S. and around the world.

The Mission Pledge helps support the denomination’s evangelism, church planting, education and justice work as well as ministry to children, youth, older adults, new immigrants, rural, urban and suburban populations across the United States and around the world.  It also makes possible PW in the Congregation,     Presbytery, Synod and Churchwide, as well as PW’s programs, resources, events and much more.  The USA Mission Experience, Horizons magazine and Bible study, the Global Exchange, justice work and so much.  When you give to PW’s Mission Pledge, you make all of this possible. Your gift ensures that this caring community of women can continue its witness to the promise of God’s kingdom.

This year, the PW circles will study together Cloud of Witnesses: The Community of Christ in Hebrews by Melissa Bane Sevier.  On September 3, at 11:15 a.m., our associate pastor, The Rev. Brittany Tamminga, will provide an overview and insights to study lessons 1 and 2 for circle study leaders and members.
