Women's Bible Study

“Women of the Way” Study
May 18—June 29

For Everything a Season by Joan Chittister

For Everything a SeasonAll women of the church are invited to a discussion of this thoughtful book by Benedictine Sister Joan Chittister.  Through the study we’ll look closely at the well-known passage in the third chapter of Ecclesiastes, “For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven…” and discuss together how we can approach the various seasons of our lives, whether times of joy, grief or something in between.  Chittister’s insightful voice brings these age-old words to us in a way that challenges us to pay full attention and to trust where God might be taking us in each season.  Her constant refrain is that nothing we experience can take us outside the sphere of God’s love and redemptive purposes for our lives.

Each gathering will include time for fellowship and facilitated small group discussion.  Class sign up will be in Spencer Hall on May 7 and May 14.  Books may also be purchased in Spencer Hall for $10. 

Date: Thursdays, May 18-June 29
Time: 9:15—11 a.m.
Place: Meeting room to be announced

 

 

 

 

Presbyterian Women Events and Education

pw lunch prepThe Presbyterian Women of FPC are filling the roles today of ushers, greeters, readers, teachers , Elders and Deacons, knitters of prayer shawls and as always, they bake and serve the delicious cookies and punch in Spencer Hall after each worship service. 

We provide opportunities for fellowship, community giving and growing our faith through a variety of programs and activities.  We welcome all women of the church and guests to our Gatherings which take place at noon on the first Wednesday of each month, October through May and a summer salad luncheon. 

The PW has four Circles which meet monthly at various times for Bible Studies and fellowship.  Dates and times are published in the Outreach and online.

The Presbyterian Women give over $10,000 each year to local charities.  They honor veterans in November, collect blankets and jackets on Blanket Sunday and school supplies for needy children. Many members volunteer at local agencies. They rock babies, teach children to read in after-school literacy programs, cook and serve meals to the homeless  and join in the construction of houses at Habitat for Humanity. 

The PW nurture their faith through prayer and Bible study and want everyone to feel welcome to join them.  Women can be a member of a Circle or not.  Some ladies just attend the Gatherings or other activities.

Sew & Sews
