Presbyterian Women (PW) is an independent organization within the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) of more than 300,000 women. The programming and resource options for the organization offer a variety of ways for women to live out their faith in an inclusive, caring community.

Mark your calendars for a special event following the 10 o’clock worship service on Sunday, August 28. Presbyterian Women are dedicating a plaque and camellia for our beloved Catherine Vandegrift, who was a devoted Circle member and served as mission chairman for many years. The dedication service will be in the courtyard adjacent to the columbarium.  Following the short service, we invite everyone to join us for a pot-luck lunch in the Fellowship Hall.  Bring your favorite salad or dish to share; drinks will be provided.  Please let us know if you plan to attend by calling the church office. 

PW Purpose

Prayer Shawl Ministry

Prayer Shawl Ministry began at our church in September 2007 as an outreach of our Presbyterian Women.  Those who are knitting and crocheting pray that the shawls will be tangible reminders of God’s steadfast love, of the comfort God gives, the peace God sends, the healing God provides, and the hope God offers.  The shawls are given as gifts from our church.


Prior to the pandemic we met the third Tuesday of each month from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM in the PW Productions Room (#27). When it is safe to gather again, we’ll be happy to teach you how to make a prayer shawl and have you join us in sharing ideas, tips, fellowship, and prayer. Newcomers are welcome! Currently you can be a part of this ministry through your handwork at home (preferred size for our prayer shawls is 30” by 60”).


Be sure to let us know if you have a new baby or grandbaby in your family! We have baby items, and we’d like to share with your new family member.


Please let us know of someone who might benefit from the comfort of a prayer shawl or baby item. The recipients do NOT have to be members of our church.


Contact Robbie Knox to suggest a prayer shawl recipient or ask questions and get details about types of yarn and to arrange drop off or pick up.
