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 2023-2024
Circles meet on the 4th Tuesday of the month (morning, afternoon and evening) for fellowship and study.
NEW PW 2023-2024 STUDY GUIDE: This year, we will reflect on the ways people have encountered Jesus in the study guide, Sacred Encounters: The Power and Presence of Jesus Christ in Luke-Acts by Olive Mahabir with Suggestions for Leaders by Angelica Quiñonez Cubero.
In the nine lessons of this Bible study, we will look into the gospel according to Luke and the Acts, where we’ll find
Elizabeth, blessed by God with a child after infertility
Jesus exorcising demons from a possessed man
A woman being healed of chronic bleeding
Mary, Martha, and the role of each person in the faith
Lepers being healed
The disciples leading people to encounter Jesus
Through this bible study, we will come to appreciate the inclusivity of Jesus and his work.
All are welcome to join at any time. Study books will be ordered in early June. To order, call Donna G or Pat D. Missed the deadline? We can still get the reading material to you.
For more information and any questions please contact: Co-Moderators: Linda Cirillo and Gloria Tatar
