Churchwide Gathering

Presbyterian Women’s in-person 2021 Churchwide Gathering, which was to be held in St. Louis, has been cancelled. However, Presbyterian Women are committed and connected, so will you join us online for a Gathering event and PW’s Business Meeting?

The triennial Business Meeting will be held online August 4 and 5, 2021, and is open for anyone to watch. Then, following the conclusion of the Business Meeting on August 5,  Presbyterian Women will hold an Online Churchwide Gathering Event—two hours of worship and plenary that you can stream from your home, office or church! Inspiring speakers and preachers—including Rev. Dr. Diane Moffett, president and executive director of the Presbyterian Mission Agency of the PC(USA)will lead a time of rejoicing and renewal.

The Online Churchwide Gathering Event will also include time for celebrating and strengthening Presbyterian Women. Would you like to thank a mentor, celebrate your PW group or highlight an amazing ministry? Three tiers of engagement allow you to share your message and also financially support Presbyterian Women’s ministries!

About the 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 (held just before the Gathering!) is where the voting representatives decide the budget, leadership and programmatic emphases for the next triennium. PW in the Presbytery (PWP) and Synod (PWS) moderators began receiving communication about the meeting in mid-February 2021. If you are a PWP or PWS moderator and did not receive the communication, please contact Patricia Longfellow.
