Presbyterian Women, the oldest and largest mission partner of the PC(USA), is 230 years old. 2018 marks 30 years since the former women’s organizations united to form Presbyterian Women.
We gather to nurture our faith, support missions, work for justice, and build community. We encourage you to join the warm embrace of intentional relationship in whatever terms your life story permits. We welcome all by supporting each other and learning to rest in the promise of God’s presence. This is the heart of WRPC PW, a desire to journey together in Christian love.
- Circles– Each of the five Circles meets on the second Monday of the month. Four Circles follow the Horizons Bible Study, one discusses contemporary literature, and all provide fellowship and mission opportunities.
- General Gatherings- Several general gatherings are held during the year to which all women of the congregation are invited. They include a light meal or refreshments and a program.
