Presbyterian Women’s next Churchwide Gathering was held August 2–5, 2018 in Louisville, Kentucky!
Whether you’d like to revisit your time at the Gathering or want to learn more, here are a few highlights.
“Arise, shine, your light has come!” (based on Isaiah 60:1) was the theme for the 2018 Gathering. Held every three years, PW’s Churchwide Gathering is an event that celebrates and can deepen your engagement in all that Presbyterian Women does. Participants enjoy workshops, tours, forums, resource gathering (and shopping!), plenary sessions with inspiring speakers, worship and more. PW’s triennial Business Meeting took place just before the Churchwide Gathering (August 1–2), where budget, leadership and programmatic emphases for the next triennium were decided.
As you share what you experienced or want to recreate the Gathering theme for your next PW event, here are a few ways to relive or interpret the Gathering—
- download the official Gathering logo or one of the variants to create your own Gathering logo wear
