Presbyterian Women answer the call to be the hands and feet of Christ in the world. Whether it’s by picking up knitting needles to create a blanket for a child in need or picking up a crowbar to participate in disaster recovery work, Presbyterian Women get to work when there’s a need.
Together in Service is a loosely defined mission program; it’s everything that Presbyterian Women does for mission. To be Together in Service, some PW groups offer ongoing support to local church or community projects. Other groups commit to answering short-term needs in their communities. Still other groups provide goods, labor or financial support for Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) mission work or one of Presbyterian Women’s affiliates.
