PW Service Projects


March – The Child Advocacy Center protects children helps to stop abuse. Donations needed include bottled water, juice boxes, individually wrapped snacks, easel paper, paper towels, toilet and facial tissue. Bring items to the volunteer desk in Eller Hall or place them in the bin on the second floor near the elevator.

April: Since the City Rescue Mission has closed, we will be donating to the Person Street UMC Missions which includes Martha’s Table, Mary’s Closet and the food bank. They can use any clothing, household goods, toiletries, empty pill bottles and nonperishable foods. Special needs now are men’s clothing and food but they will be happy to accept all donations.

Goals of PW

We will:

  • GLORIFY God in all of our work;
  • GATHER often in Christian fellowship and love;
  • GROW in faith and in mission;
  • be GLAD and rejoice in our lives as Presbyterian Women

Praise the Lord. Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.
Psalm 106:1
Hymn“Be thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Not be all else to save that Thou art –
Thou my best thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord.
Thou great Father, I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.”

  • Circles are small gatherings of PW for Bible study, fellowship and service.
  • Every woman who is a member of First Presbyterian Church is also a member of PW and a First Lady.
  • All PW are placed in circles but may attend any circle that they would like to attend.
