Presbyterian Women


Welcome to Presbyterian Women

The three figures in our logo represent ALL women in the Presbyterian church, young or old, of any national or ethnic background … a community of women in Christ. “Forgiven” is suggested by all three figures rising from the Bible. One is studying. One is caring for others. One is praising God. The three figures suggest the Trinity: The design is a triangle within a circle suggesting Trinity and Unity. The Bible represents the Word who is Jesus Christ, the foundation of our faith and fellowship.

Our 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 (USA) and witnesses to the promise of God’s kingdom.

Christian Caring Center Socks Box – Thank You!
Thank you FPC Moorestown for helping to fill the Socks Box this January! The contents were delivered to the Christian Caring Center in Browns Mills.
An article in the February 21 Courier Post highlighted the need:
“National surveys reveal the No. 1 requested item by homeless shelters is not coats or hats, but clean socks. In addition to protecting the feet from hypothermia and frostbite, those surveys also show that homeless guests often suffer from extensive foot problems such as blisters, infections, and other skin-related conditions due to the lack of clean socks.”
Thank you for stepping up so others can step out more comfortably!

PW Fall Gathering

Held on September 21, 2020 via Zoom
The Women of the Church invited members and friends to the Fall Gathering at First Presbyterian Church, hosted by Presbyterian Women via Zoom.
Our featured guest speaker, Pam Main, treated all to an inspirational message, based on this year’s PW study: “Into the Light… Finding Hope Through Prayers of Lament”.
Laments are prayers that bridge the space between our faith in God and the reality of living in our not-yet-redeemed world. In this study we see that Jesus offered prayers of lament and noted suffering and sorrow in the world. If we are to pattern our lives after His, we need to reclaim lament in our personal and corporate prayer. We need to lament, and Pam encouraged us to “Let it Out”.

We invite you to watch Pam Main’s presentation.
