First United Presbyterian Church

Presbyterian Women

Scripture asks us to be the hands and feet of Christ in the world. Presbyterian Women provides information about justice and peace and ministry to inform mission and community-building work.

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
