PRESBYTERIAN WOMEN

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.

PRESBYTERIAN WOMEN’S GATHERINGS 2017-2018
All women of the church are invited to attend Gatherings of Presbyterian Women each month, September through May. At each Gathering, a meal and fellowship are shared and a program is presented. PW Circles also meet each month for Bible Study/Fellowship and special event fundraisers are held during the year.  Details for any of these events can be found in the monthly Steeple and in the Sunday worship bulletins.

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.
