Presbyterian Women

PW Circle Logo

Presbyterian Women at DCPC actively engage in the life of the church through prayer, Bible study, supporting worldwide missions, working for peace and justice, and supporting the church and community activities. 

There are many who believe that the future of the church is built on small groups studying and worshiping together. Circles are small groups of women…and men... who meet monthly for fellowship, and Bible or book study.  Membership is open to all church members.  Eight groups are presently in place to provide fellowship, Christian growth, and outreach, meeting September through May of each year.

Evening Small Groups

  • Circle 2:  meets 7:30 pm in homes, 1st Monday of the month.  Circle #2 was created decades ago to accommodate working women in our congregation.  This circle meets the first Monday of each month with most meetings are in member's home. Rather than the Presbyterian Unified Study, the group reads and discusses short stories on faith by noted authors.  With a great variety of ages and talents, Circle #2 is a dynamic group welcoming church and non-church members.. Contact Brenda Barger hbbarger@gamil.com
  • Circle 7:  meets the first Thursday night of the month at 7:00 p.m. in the Church Parlor.  We strive to follow the Presbyterian Women purpose as we nurture one another's faith, studying the PW Horizons Bible study and remembering each other in prayer. We support each other as a circle of friends who love and care for each other.  Community Missions are important to us (including coordinating the Day of Service Luncheon in the fall and sponsoring the Lydia's Loft winter coat drive).  All ages are welcome!  Contact Trish Jones patriciawjones92@gmail.com
  • Circle 8:  The women of Circle 8 vary their study from year to year, occasionally choosing the PW Horizon’s materials, but most often using outside books for discussion.  This year's study will be "Seamless: Understanding the Bible in One Complete Story", by Angie Smith. While study is important, the faithful friendships and fellowship we enjoy are a highlight of this group as we journey through life’s challenges and celebrations.  Members are in a variety of roles, some in the professional world, some full-time domestic and volunteer, some with high school and college-aged children.  We meet on the second Monday of each month, at 6:30pm, in individual homes and at the church.  We welcome visitors and new members, and meeting locations can be found in the church bulletin or by contacting the office or Diana Merrifield at dianamerrifield@yahoo.com
