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.  



    A very special THANK YOU to everyone who is working on the PW Annual Luncheon!  The luncheon team is Barbara McInnes (Chair), Jim McInnes (Chef), Linda Keenum (Dining Room Coordination), Jan Stevens (Fashion Show), and Auction Gifts (Gail Lehman, Gail Barrett, and Pam Davis).  They are doing a wonderful job of keeping the rest of us organized!   

    Our next circle meeting will be on Tuesday, Nov. 12, at 2:00 in Fellowship Hall.  We will be studying Chapter 2.  

    Snacks for the Community Medical Team will be delivered on the first Monday of October and November.  Emails or texts will remind the volunteers.

    Hope all of you have a lovely fall!  Take time to enjoy the colors and feel of our beautiful fall weather -- the wave of God's paint brush to fill us thru our less colorful winter!
