  • Love Offering – Supports Paw Creek Presbyterian Women and Presbytery Worldwide Missions.
Budgeted contribution is based upon the number of circle members each year. This is paid each Circle year.
  • Sunshine Offering – Circle offering that covers miscellaneous expenses for each circle (such as Home Circle member birthdays and Christmas).  If there is a balance remaining in this collection at the end of the year, each Circle must decide what to do with the balance and inform the Treasurer.

This offering is used for the Health Ministries Fund of PW, which includes numerous projects. (See your Fall Horizons magazine for a listing. All Presbyterian Women are encouraged to provide suggested projects for this offering to the PW Enabler.)

All Presbyterian Women are encouraged to provide suggested projects for this offering to their PW Enabler.

PW 2016-2017 BIBLE STUDY
“Who Is Jesus?”

What a difference a Lens Makes

Insight from different writings of who Jesus is thru their lens.

Halfway through the Gospel of Mark, as Jesus and his disciples are on their way to Caesarea Philippi, Jesus turns to his disciples and asks,

“So, what’s the word on the street? Who do people say that I am?”It seems like a reasonable question to ask the people who travel with you and who have the opportunity to hear what folks in their towns and villages are saying about their teacher. “Well,” they answer, “some say you are John the Baptist (back from the dead); others think you are one of the prophets, maybe Elijah, maybe another one.” Then Jesus looks them squarely in the eyes and asks, “Yes, but who do you say that I am?” Now that’s a good question! The author’s prayer is that, through the course of this study, you will find your own voice, your own answer. When Jesus turns and looks you squarely in the eyes and asks, “Who do you say that I am?”

what will you say?

ALL Women WELCOME to join Presbyterian Women for circle. We meet monthly, 1st Tuesday of each month.  If you haven’t been able to attend a meeting or if you have missed a month, you will not be behind.
