The Presbyterian Women (PW) Day Circle at University Presbyterian Church meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 10:00am for Bible study, fellowship, and mission outreach. PW also gathers as ”Helping Hands” on the third Tuesday of each month at 10:00am for sewing and other needle craft projects for local and world missions.
Presbyterian Women works through congregations, presbyteries, synods and churchwide to inform and involve women and men in local and world mission opportunities. Through Horizon’s Bible study and its bi-monthly magazine, people can learn how to serve Christ in the world through advocacy, prayer, mission and peace and justice. The Birthday and Thank Offerings provide grants to assist women and children in the United States and around the world who live in poverty or are homeless. There are also “hands on projects” such as making dresses for African girls out of pillow cases or collecting supplies for health kits, schools kits or hygiene kits for Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA). Presbyterian Women are involved in local missions such as Presbyterian Children’s Home and Services, local domestic violence and homeless shelters. They are also a major supporter of Living Waters of the World and Solar Under the Sun, which provide clean water and solar power to people in Cuba, Haiti, Ukraine and many other countries. Presbyterian Women offer churchwide, synod and presbytery gatherings for women and men to participate in workshops to learn new ways to be involved in mission and women’s issues. Recently, PW participated in the United Nation’s Commission on the Status on Women, advocating their support of international laws to protect women from violence and human trafficking.
