PW (Presbyterian Women)



Presbyterian Women is an organization open to all women of the church. All women who belong to the Presbyterian Church ARE Presbyterian Women! The group meets regularly for "circles" (small groups; see below), Bible studies, community service projects, and luncheon fellowships.  "A Woman who fears the Lord is to be praised" (Proverbs 31.30)


September Tuesday Together: September 20 at 10 a.m. in the First Presbyterian Church Great Hall.  This month, we are excited to host guest speaker Laura Fleming, Director of Development for Presbyterian Children’s Homes and Services (PCHAS). Laura will be sharing with us the mission of PCHAS which includes Community-based Programs, Residential Programs, Community-based Programs in Texas, Louisiana, and Missouri. PCHAS’ mission is to provide Christ centered care and support to children and families in need. The services they provide include all races, gender, national origin, financial resources, or religion to more than 5,000 children and families.

Everything we do as an organization and as a community is guided by our PW Purpose and that includes ministry, resources and relationships.

Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit we commit ourselves:
1.     To nurture our faith through prayer and Bible Study
2.     To support the mission of the church worldwide
3.     To work for justice and peace
4.     To build an inclusive, caring community of women that strengthens the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and witnesses to the promise of God.

Presbyterian Women are aligned under a shared Purpose, but the gifts of the Spirit allow us to live into the Purpose in our own, unique ways.  Some individuals or groups find themselves particularly drawn to one or two points of the Purpose. Other groups or individuals consciously work toward fulfilling all points.  There are many faithful ways to live out the PW Purpose! 

Contact people for Presbyterian Women are Deneice Allen and Rev. Dr. Michael Waschevski


All women who belong to the Presbyterian Church ARE Presbyterian Women! PW circles provide a wonderful small group experience that is especially important in a large church such as ours. The small group setting allows intimacy to develop. Members can keep in close touch with one another and provide care for one another and their families in times of need. The fellowship that is shared in a circle builds sustaining and enriching friendships that continue to keep people close even after the circle reorganizes every two years. We are all women in various stages of our life's journey and, as we come together, we learn from those who have journeyed ahead of us just as we are energized and challenged by those coming up behind us.
