Presbyterian Women

History

Women's groups in the Presbyterian Church have a powerful history. Since the early 1800s Presbyterian women have organized themselves to support mission and combat social injustices nationally and internationally. While the levels of involvement and recognition from the denominations has varied, women's dedication to living out God's call through women's organizations has remained steady. Learn more about the history of PW

Covenant

Over the years, it became apparent that a clear understanding about the relationship between Presbyterian Women and the national church structure needed to be articulated. The Covenant — approved in August 2001 by the Churchwide Coordinating Team of Presbyterian Women (CCT/PW) and the General Assembly Mission Council (GAMC) — clarifies, enhances and strengthens that relationship.

Presbyterian Women groups

Presbyterian Women is a churchwide group organized at all levels of the PC(USA). Like the PC(USA) structure, PW in the Congregation forms the basis for PW in the Presbytery; PW in the Presbytery feeds into PW in the Synod, and so on. 

In our context, PW meets in three circles--Morning Circle meets the last Wednesday of the month at 9:30 am, afternoon circle meets the last Wednesday of the month at 2:00pm, and the Evening circle (PW@Night) meets on the second Monday at 7pm
