All women of First United are invited and encouraged to participate in PW Gatherings, circle meetings, special events and fund raisers. Presbyterian Women are dedicated to the mission of the Presbyterian Women of the Presbytery of Giddings-Lovejoy:
Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ and empowered
by the Holy Spirit, 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, and
to build an inclusive, caring community of women that
strengthens the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and
and witnesses to the promise of God's Kingdom.

All women are invited to attend Gatherings of Presbyterian Women on the first Friday of September, November, December, February, March and May. At each Gathering, a meal and fellowship are shared and a program presented. The Gathering in January will be on the first Saturday.

PRESBYTERIAN WOMEN’S CIRCLES
A circle is a small group of women who meet monthly. In each circle, faith is nurtured and growth takes place through worship, Bible study, fellowship and outreach. There are three circles which meet at different times and days. These circles are open to all women.
