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. 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!
Presbyterian Women 2020-2021
Circles meet on the 4th Tuesday of the month (morning, afternoon and evening) for fellowship and study. This year’s study is Into the Light: Finding Hope Through Prayers of Lament, a study that promises to “revive(s) lament as a proper theological response to the difficult situations of the world” (from the PW website). What an appropriate time to consider this topic!
Our next general meeting will be October 6, at 1 pm online when Leslie Goddard returns will a prerecorded talk titled Remembering Marshall Field’s. She has written a book of this title and it is available on Amazon, if you’re interested. Further in the year we will be treated to programs on container gardening, a folk music performance with Gregg Morton and Lonesome Eagle, and much more. We’re happy to be back and we look forward to seeing you!
For more information and any questions please contact:
Co-Moderators: Linda Cirillo or Diane Cryer.

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.
