Presbyterian Women (PW)
Presbyterian Women (PW) is a church-wide organization whose membership is open to all women of the PC(USA) who choose to participate. PW intentionally seeks membership that is inclusive of all racial ethnic and age groups, so that the organization reflects a vision of the whole church as a community of mutual interdependence in which diversity contributes to wholeness.
PW gives strong support to the mission of the PC(USA) and determines its own leadership, program, and budget. PW is organized at the congregation, Presbytery, Synod, and Church-wide levels.
The PW purpose is as follows: 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 witnesses to the promise of God’s kingdom.
