Presbyterian Women



Pursuant to the by-laws of the Presbyterian Women committee, proposed changes to the by-laws (under which the community of women operate) must be posted 30 days prior to voting on the changes. Two items have been proposed for update. This update is necessary to bring the by-laws into compliance with changes made by the First Presbyterian Church of Moorestown.
  • The job of Treasurer will be changed to match the current processes (see Article VII – Finances, Section 1)
  • The name of the Presbytery will be changed from West Jersey to The Presbytery for Southern New Jersey (see Article VI – Relationships, Section 2 and Article VII – Finances, Section 1)
Members of PW will have the opportunity to vote during the Fall Gathering of Presbyterian Women on Monday, September 18, 2023 at 7:00 pm.

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.
