Presbyterian Women

Presbyterian Women is a churchwide organization whose membership is open to all women of the PC (USA) who choose to participate in or be supportive of PW in any way. PW intentionally seeks the membership of women from all racial ethnic groups so that the organization reflections a vision of the whole church as a community of mutual interdependence in which diversity contributes to wholeness. PW gives strong support to the mission of the PC (USA) and determines its own leadership, program and budget. Horizons (July/August 2000)

Mission Statement

Our mission is to empower leadership of Presbyterian Women in the Congregations through spiritual development, education and communication as well as serve as a link between PW in the congregation, synod, and churchwide.


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 (U.S.A.) and witnesses to the promise of God’s kingdom.
