Presbyterian Women

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, we 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.  The PW has four Circles which meet monthly at various times for Bible Studies and fellowship. Currently our Circle meetings are taking place either in person or through Zoom.  If you would like to join a Circle or would like to get more information on the Presbyterian Women, please contact PW Moderator, Carolyn Bennett.

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.

Women of the Way

Who are "Women of the Way?"

WOW seeks to reflect the overarching message at FPCN of God's unconditional love and grace extended to all people.  Our primary purpose is to foster Christian education, spiritual growth and caring fellowship among women.

Each gathering includes a time for fellowship, teaching or devotional reflection and facilitated small group discussion, and our study sources alternate between Scripture and other Christian-based books and study guides.  Women are encouraged to deepen their understanding of the Christian faith and to apply their knowledge to both inward change and outward expression.  The challenge posed is not only, "What do I believe?" but “What difference does this make in my daily living?"  The atmosphere of loving fellowship in our WOW gatherings fosters learning and trust where growth can happen.

 

Prayer Shawl Ministry
This ministry to our church has become very popular in a short time. Over 150 recipients have been overjoyed to recieve the thoughtful and loving gift of a prayer shawl.  Patterns and yarn are available to get you started.  Contact the church office if you would like more information.
Fall 2021 WOW

The Women of the Way fellowship invites ALL women of the church to participate in our fall study on the parables of Jesus.  During our 7-week series we will be studying "Surprised by the Parables: Growing in Grace through the Stories of Jesus" by Michelle Lee-Barnewall.   You may order the book directly through Amazon ($19) or we can order it for you if you prefer.  Each session will include a time of teaching or personal reflection by one of our women followed by facilitated small group discussion.

Sessions will be held on Thursdays, 9:30-11 a.m.  October 21 - December 9 (excluding Thanksgiving).

We will have an in-person option in Spencer Hall and a ZOOM option which will include a pre-recorded teaching/personal reflection video followed by small group time.  

RSVP to fpcwomen2017@gmail.com (Pat Nordbrock) or call Andie Goodrich at 404.317.5850.  Please include: 1)  whether you plan to attend in person or by ZOOM; 2) if you'd like us to order a study guide for you.  We hope you'll join us for meaningful study and wonderful fellowship with other women of the church.  In these times we need the connections more than ever!
