The 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.
