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.

 

WOW Spring Bible Study

 ALL women of the church are invited to attend the WOW spring bible study focusing on the parables of Jesus.  This four week series will conclude our parables theme from last fall using the well-received study guide, Surprised by the Parables. Even if you didn't attend the fall session, we encourage you to take part.  Each weekly lesson stands alone so you won't be "behind" and you can fully participate in the small group discussion and good fellowship of our gatherings. In this study we'll explore four of the compelling and everyday stories Jesus told to those with hearts open to hear and understand his powerful message of God's grace.  We'll discuss the deep truths behind these stories and how we might apply their still-relevant lessons to our lives today.  Each study will begin with a brief devotional and allow ample time for small group discussion.

When: Thursdays, May 12 - June 2; 9:30-11:00 a.m.
Where: Spencer Hall, in-person and by Zoom IF enough people request a Zoom group.
Study Resource:
Surprised by the Parables: Growing in Grace through the Stories of Jesus by Michelle Lee-Barnewall, associate professor of biblical studies at Biola University.  If you need a copy of the book it can be ordered directly on Amazon or we'll order a copy for you.  Cost: $19.00
Sign-Up: RSVP to fpcwomen2017@gmail.com (Pat Nordbrock) or sign up after the worship service in Spencer Hall on Sunday, 5/1 and 5/8. 
Please let us know:
1) if you'd like us to order a study guide for you
2) if you’d like to attend in-person or by Zoom

We hope you'll join us for meaningful study and wonderful fellowship with other women of the church.
