Who are The Presbyterian Women of The Presbyterian Church (USA)?
The Presbyterian Women are women within the PC (USA) who understand that scripture asks us to be the hands and feet of Christ in the world. As such, Presbyterian Women provide information about justice and peace and ministry to inform mission and community-building work.
The Presbyterian Women of the PC (USA) seek a purpose that includes ministry, resources and relationships.
The Presbyterian Women believe:
–We are forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit.
-And we commit ourselves:
to nurture our faith through prayer and Bible study,
to support the mission of the church worldwide,
to work for justice and peace, and
to build an inclusive, caring community of women that strengthens the Presbyterian
Church (USA) and witnesses to the promise of God’s kingdom.
Anyone who supports the purpose above in any way is participating in Presbyterian Women. 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!
