Help is always needed with special events including the Fall and Spring Gatherings, and the Strawberry Social. Funeral receptions and lunches are served as needed and the Christmas Candlelight Choir is provided with a supper between services. A number of women participate in the annual PW-led Worship Service. Everyone is welcomed needed for these events.
PW co-sponsors some mission projects with the Mission Ministry Unit, and also regularly support local as well as worldwide missions through financial contributions to General Assembly. Birthday Offering, Thank Offering and Least Coin Offering support mission projects including medical which benefit women and children worldwide. In addition, PW contributes to a yearly Synod mission project. The 200closeERROR: No results were found for your search.closeERROR: No results were found for your search.5 project was the Haitian Housing initiative which will fund materials for Haitians to build houses with leadership from our missionaries in Haiti. The proposal for this project originated with State College PW. The Synod project for 2006 will be Camp Krislund.
Presbyterian Women is connectional just as the Presbyterian Church is a connectional church. On the national level, PW publishes “Horizons,” a magazine which shares how Christian women worldwide are living out their faith. “Horizons” also publishes a yearly Bible Study issue.
Any special interest group of Presbyterian women can organize as part of the connectional PW and can send representatives to the Coordinating Team meetings to help guide, lead, and coordinate women’s activities in this church.
