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.


Spring 2023 Study

 ALL women of the church are invited to participate in our Season ’23 study.  The rich theme of Sabbath has emerged as the right one for both our Presbyterian Women and Women of the Way fellowships, and each study can enrich and expand the other as we recognize our great need as Christian women to draw from the Sabbath gifts of renewal and joy.  Our study book, Soul Tending: A Journey Into The Heart of Sabbath by pastor Anita Amstutz, explores Sabbath as a spiritual practice with the power to transform our lives from the inside out – weekly, daily, hourly.  Through Sabbath practice we accept the invitation into the intimate and loving friendship that God desires.  Could there be a greater gift in our over-filled lives?  We hope you’ll join in this meaningful study where we learn and grow together!

When: Thursdays, 9:00-11:00 a.m., January 26-March 16

Where: Spencer Hall; a Zoom group will also be offered

Sign-up: RSVP to with your name, contact information and whether you’ll participate in-person or by Zoom; OR at the WOW table in Spencer Hall after both worship services on January 15 or 22.
