Presbyterian Women's News

 Pat Mesta,  Moderator

 For more than 200 years, Presbyterian women have played a vital role in the mission and ministry of the Presbyterian Church (USA). That continues today at the Church, Presbytery, Synod, and Church wide levels through Presbyterian Women. Many Presbyterian Women in Western North Carolina are involved in circles, conduct Bible studies, are active in their communities, and contribute in ways large and small which impact the world. Presbyterian Women truly endeavor to live out the Presbyterian Women Purpose, which follows.

Presbyterian Women Purpose
Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ, and 
Empowered by the Holy Sprit, 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, 
To build an inclusive, caring community of women 
That strengthens the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), 
And witnesses to the promise of God’s Kingdom.

Any women interested in joining one of the
Circle are welcome.  



Hi Everyone!  A busy time for Presbyterian Women!

We will be preparing snacks for the Medical Clinic on the first Monday.  Please have the goodies in the kitchen by 10am on 8/5. 


Plans for our Fall Luncheon are underway. Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 5th at 11:30am. Tickets will be $10 each.  Plan to come and sit at an open-guest table or start filling up a reserved table of 6.  1) Jan Stevens is busy seeking volunteers to serve as models during our luncheon. 2) The donation committee needs gift certificates from hairdressers, nail salons, oil changes, etc. Also, food donations, such as yummy pound cakes, catered dinners, frozen casseroles, etc., are welcome. Handmade crafts, like lap quilts, aprons, scarfs, etc, are always a hit!!!  3) Brenda Kraft is selling tickets. Please contact her to get your tickets. The McInnes’ are our special guiding lights!  Barbara is our general chairman, and Jim will be preparing our delicious food!

Lots to keep our calendars full!  Have a great August!  Pat Mesta, 678-677-5363

Have a healthy, fun summer!
