Presbyterian Women’s Purpose:
Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves…
* to nurture our faith through prayer and Bible study,
* to support the mission of the church worldwide,
* to work for justice and peace and
* to build an inclusive, caring community of women
that strengthens the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)
and witnesses to the promise of God’s kingdom.
Come join us as we try to fulfill the purposes of Presbyterian Women. There are serious and fun times in our meetings and always good times catching up with old and new members.
Join us in October on Thursday, October 3 at 10am.
Join us in the Marshall Parlor (first floor past the office). There’ll be coffee and pastries to enjoy as well as a fellowship time to meet and greet.
One of the changes this year is that we’ll stay in the parlor for our meeting. Another is that we’ll be doing a book study rather than a Bible study. Our study book is “Listening for God, Volume 4”.
“Where do you listen for God? In this new collection of stories and essays, the challenge is to pay attention everywhere. Listening for God is intended to help readers investigate how life and faith merge in surprising ways and places.”
Books are for sale in the west parlor on Sundays and during the week in the church office. Cost is $14. If you need a ride to this meeting, please call Georgia Bacquet, 278-3172, and she will find you one.
The Leadership Team (i.e. coordinating team) will meet September 5 at 9 am.
Fall Gathering –The Presbyterian Women Fall Gathering is Saturday, October 5 at Camp Burnamwood. Contact Georgia Bacquet if you are interested in attending.
2019 PIE/CAKE DAY WILL BE OCTOBER 20.
The Presbyterian Women sponsor a Pie/Cake Day where the women and members/friends of MSPC bring pies and cakes to be sold and the funds are used for an international mission project. Last fall $1200 was raised and given to Porch de Salomon in Guatemala, where our youth spent a week working this past summer. The recipient for this year is “Build Congo Schools”. We sent money to this project in 2013 and it continues to be a good mission project.
