About Presbyterian Women

In July 1988 delegates to the organizing meeting of Presbyterian Women adopted an original symbol designed by Sarah Abbot of the Synod of the Covenant (Michigan/Ohio) as its logo.  This logo appears on the front covert of the 2014-15 Directory of Presbyterian Women.

The central figure stands in praise.  Rooted in Faith, a trio of women emerges.  The outline of the central figure forms a cross.  The right figure holds a book to guide her reading, studying, praying, or meditating.  The left figure reaches out to care for others, as she shares, nurtures, heals.  The circle represents the church worldwide where women offer their gifts and talents in the midst of the global community.  The uplifted arms of the central figure reach out to embrace a just peace. 

The relationship among the three figures depicts lives of wholeness rather than turmoil.  The three women have no distinct features.  They represent all women.  The shapes surrounding them express energy, strength, and openness.  The Bible resembles the Bible depicted in the PCUSA seal.  The links represent each of us.



Please join us to share in our fellowship.   









Bible Study
We are beginning the 2017-18 Presbyterian Women's Circle with a Bible Study called Cloud of Witnesses:  The Community of Christ in Hebrews.  We will explore the Bible's different views of community as demonstrated in the Book of Hebrews. 

You will see in the (paper copy) PW directory how, where, and when the lessons are offered.  If your name is not in the PW directory and you would like to come to a meeting, please call the hostess of the month, Jamie Morris, or the church front office at 540-886-0704.  All are welcome!

We have many opportunities to help out in our community.  A list of our PW benevolences and special offerings are listed in the PW directory and included in the missions portion of this website.  

PW usually meets the second Tuesday of each month at 6 pm  in the church library on the main floor of Fraser Building (where the church office is).  Unless otherwise noted in church bulletins, PW meetings are preceded by a pot luck dinner and organized by a different hostess each month.  We have an hour to eat and socialize, followed by a Bible study and a brief business meeting.  

If you live in a facility that provides meals or if you are unable to cook or purchase a food item to bring, please come anyway!  If you need a ride, please ask the church office to notify Jamie Morris, and we will arrange for someone to pick you up and take you home.

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;
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.
