Presbyterian Women

Presbyterian Women (PW) offers Christian Fellowship with an annual Christmas luncheon as well as monthly circle meetings.  The PW serves lunches for the family and friends following each funeral, and takes up several mission-related offerings throughout the year.  The PW gives our time, talents and financial support to food projects and elder care in our community, to the youth programs in our church and school system and to other needs of our church and congregation.  We deliver flowers to shut-ins at Christmas time, serve lunch at funerals held in our church.  We assist with Good Samaritan activities and welcome others to please feel free to help with Bingo games on Tuesdays of each month at 2:30 p.m.  The PW also sponsors a monthly birthday party at the Good Samaritan Home.  The PW has one social event a year and if you would like to volunteer or help with this or have an idea for this event, please visit with the moderator or co-moderator.
