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.)

“Cloud of Witnesses?”

The Community of Christ in Hebrews


2017–2018 PW/Horizons Bible Study

 In nine lessons, the author invites us to explore major themes found in Hebrews, relate these themes to other parts of our faith tradition, and tie them together with the overarching motif of community.


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.

Morning Circle @ 10:00am and Evening Circle @ 7:15pm in the Church Parlor
