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.  



February is an exciting month for our circles. We are going to have a combined Ruth and Naomi Circles meeting. We’ll be meeting on Feb. 12th (the second Tuesday) at 2:00pm. We’re hoping that longer daylight hours will make it easier for all of us to attend.

Ruth and Naomi Circles – 2/12 (second Tuesday) at 2:00 pm in Fellowship Hall

Our Valentine luncheon has been moved to March 14th at noon. So now we’ll have a St. Patrick’s Day luncheon instead!

We’ll be having an “Olive Garden” menu of soup, salad, and bread sticks followed by a few hours of game playing (Phase 10, Dominoes, Triominoes, etc.). Desserts and snacks are welcome. Please mark your calendars for this social event. The Mission and Service Committee is hosting a luncheon on Feb. 15th for our visiting missionaries and we want to make that event special.

Our monthly mission is to provide an evening snack for the volunteer medical team at the Macon County Health Dept. on the first Monday of each month.

The general fund provides water, cheese sticks and granola bars. So we need monthly volunteers from our members to provide 4 sandwiches (usually Bi-Lo’s), bagged carrots/celery, bagged grapes, and delivery of the food. We organize the tray at 10:00am on the first Monday and it is delivered at 5:00pm that afternoon.

See you at 2:00pm on Feb. 12th!  Pat Mesta (678-677-5363)
