SISTERS STAND AND WALK TOGETHER
Sisters Stand and Walk Together (SSWT) is a program of Presbyterian Women in the Synod of the Northeast, designed to familiarize women who have immigrated from other countries to the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and to Presbyterian Women. Women from many areas of the world have graduated from the program. Some have become leaders in Presbyterian Women in the Synod of the Northeast.
This program was formerly held at Stony Point Conference Center and included lectures, forums and workshops. A new approach is now being implemented. One is the original designers of the program, Anne Reynolds will visit groups to customize the Sisters Stand and Walk Together curriculum to a given group, congregation or presbytery. The curriculum is being revised so that it can be given out to interested groups.
The curriculum includes:
- History of the Racial Ethnic Dialogue in Presbyterian Women in the Synod of the Northeast
- Exposure to the Presbyterian Women’s purpose, and structure
- How to develop and lead a Bible study using the Horizons Bible study as a resource
- How to plan a workshop
- How to conduct an ice breaker
- Cultural barrier issues
- Women’s role in the church
- How to plan a worship service
- Introduction to resources (Book of Order, Book of Common Worship, Hymnals, periodicals, websites, etc.)
