Presbyterian Women

We are an inclusive, caring community of women who share fellowship, nurture faith, and support local and worldwide missions. Events are open to all women of Community Presbyterian Church and their guests.

General Meetings and Programs First Tuesday of every month – September to May –  in Fellowship Hall. Reservations are not needed to attend events, and babysitting will be made available upon request. Meetings include pot-luck and bag lunches, a Christmas Open House, and the Faith and Fellowship Breakfast in May.  See below for the 2016-17 Program Schedule.

IMG_5773Circles Bible study groups meet the fourth Tuesday of every month either in members’ homes or church parlor. Choose a morning, afternoon or evening group to meet your schedule. 2016-2017 Horizons Bible Study, “Who Is Jesus”.  Halfway through the Gospel of Mark, as Jesus and his disciples are on their way to Caesarea Philippi, Jesus turns to his disciples and asks, “So, what’s the word on the street? Who do people say that I am?”.   Through the course of this year’s Circle Study Lessons, the author’s prayer is that we will find our own voice, our own answer. When Jesus turns and looks us squarely in the eyes and asks, “Who do you say that I am?”, what will we say?

Please join us for thoughtful discussions among a supportive group of women.

Mission Projects PW supports many mission projects both at home and abroad. We participate in funding mission projects through our PW Mission Pledge that is distributed by the Presbytery of Chicago. Special offerings throughout the year provide funding for donations to organizations selected annually. We also directly support Association House, Pillars Community Services, Family Shelter Services, and Kemmerer Village through monetary, toy and clothing drives and volunteer means. PW can offer many ways to strengthen your commitment to Christ by joining together with other women who also share that commitment. It is a valuable way to meet new friends, reach out to others, and grow in your faith. We hope you will join us as often as possible!
