PRESBYTERIAN WOMEN

From local concerns to national engagement, Presbyterian Women (PW), guided by the Holy Spirit, are at work, ever-mindful of PW’s purpose of strengthening the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and witnessing to the promise of God’s kingdom.

Presbyterian Women at Immanuel supports Women in Presbytery de Cristo, Synod of the Southwest, and the Church-wide Presbyterian Women’s organization.

Our two Women’s Circles, Agape Circle and Lydia Circle, meet once a month for fellowship, study, and prayer. Throughout the year there are other gatherings including meeting with women from other churches at Presbytery de Cristo.

All women at Immanuel are members of Presbyterian Women and are encouraged to join one of our two PW Circles, Agape Circle or Lydia Circle. Meeting and event schedules will be posted in the Dove Newsletter.

All Women are Encouraged to Participate

All women in PC (USA) are encouraged to participate at all levels of Presbyterian Women, to attend gatherings and subscribe to Horizons Magazine.

The 2018 “Global Faces of Christianity” Churchwide Gathering was held in August in Louisville, KY.  Four of Immanuel’s Presbyterian Women members received scholarships to attend. The Scripture that inspired the theme of the Gathering: “Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.” (Is. 60:1), inspired the writers of the November/December edition of Horizons Magazine.   READ more …

PW travels every three years on either a Global Exchange or a USA Mission Experience.  In 2017 twenty women from across our synods traveled to Indonesia to learn about human trafficking and interfaith relationships.

What Do You Believe?

There are a dozen variations on the “What do you believe?” question. In a quest to understand how another person sees the world or experiences a certain moment, we might say, “What do you think?” or, as Oprah would say, “What do you know for sure?” I know it’s raining now. I think it will rain tomorrow. I believe the rain will stop before the broccoli molds. Knowledge is about facts. Thoughts are about opinions. Belief, however, is all about hope and trust in the things that we can’t know for sure.   READ more …

PW, Inc. issues statement condemning racially-motivated violence in Charlottesville

(August 15, 2017)

Presbyterian Women in the PC(USA) condemns the recent violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, and supports all efforts to end racism and promote justice and peace.

James 2:9 tells us, “If you favor some people over others, you are committing a sin. You are guilty of breaking the law.” If we truly have faith in Jesus we will not treat some people better than others, but we will strive to love one another equally through the love of Jesus Christ.   READ more …
