Presbyterian Women

Presbyterian Women actively engage in the life of the church through prayer, Bible study, fellowship, and supporting community and  worldwide missions.

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 who meet monthly for fellowship, and Bible or book study. Membership is open to all church members.  Six groups are presently in place to provide fellowship, Christian growth, and outreach, meeting September through May of each year.

During the pandemic these groups have continued to meet via Zoom or outside in small groups.   It is more important than ever to keep these groups meeting.

To learn more about attending a group, contact either Charlotte Griffith, chargriff62@gmail.com, (Moderator of Presbyterian Women) or the contact listed with each group.

Circle 2:  Meets 7:00 p.m., 1st Monday of the month and will start the year meeting via Zoom.  This year they will study the Presbyterian Women Horizons Study, "What My Grandmothers Taught Me".  The Circle began many years ago to accommodate working women in our congregation. With a variety of ages and talents, Circle #2 is dynamic and welcoming. For more information contact Allyson Ray   allysonray@att.net

Circle 7/ Mission Matters:  Meets the first Thursday night of the month at 7:00 p.m.and will meet via Zoom to start the year.  Circle 7 will also study the Horizon Study, "What My Grandmothers Taught Me".  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  Carolyn Ortmayer  caortmayer@gmail.com

Circle 8/ Explorations Group: Meets on the second Monday of the month at 7:00 p.m. and will try to meet on member's outside porches or by Zoom. This year’s study will be "The Difficult Words of Jesus" by Amy-Jill Levine.  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 welcome visitors and new members.  For more information contact Diana Merrifield   dianamerrifield@yahoo.com
