The 2015 Churchwide Gathering has ended

Minnie driving loaded bus in MinneapolisThe 2015 Churchwide Gathering of Presbyterian Women has ended . . . officially, anyway! More than 1,700 women are back home or will be there soon, with notebooks, hearts and minds focused on the Gathering theme, "One Body, One Spirit."

Stories, photos and resources from the Gathering are being uploaded to the Gathering web pages. Check in over the next few days and you'll find plenty! Your PW sisters who attended have many ideas on how to implement the ideas and understandings they're taking home. And PW's mission and ministry over the next three years will be shaped by all that we heard, learned and felt at the Gathering. Stay tuned!


Horizons bulk orders

Due to a glitch in the mailing process with our printer, the bulk Horizons subscriptions did not receive copies of the 2015–2016 PW/Horizons Bible study, Come to the Waters, with the March/April issue of Horizons magazine. The issue has been resolved, with Bible studies being mailed via first-class mail to bulk subscribers the first week of May. We apologize for any delay or inconvenience this may have caused. If you are a bulk subscriber to Horizons who did not receive the Bible study, contact Carissa Herold.

  • Gail, we anticipate having the Churchwide Gathering web page live by the middle of this month. In the meantime, the hotel has been selected, the registration cost set—and the good news is that both will cost less than in 2012! Registration is just $395 for the 2015 Gathering ($125 for single days), and rooms at the Hyatt are $169 plus tax (for up to four in a room). Put it on your calendar—June 18–21, 2015! Put a couple bucks back each day from now until then, and you can almost have it paid for by the time you get there! Can't go? Sponsor someone who can! For more details, check the latest issue of our quarterly newsletter. Go to www.presbyterianmission.org/ministries/pw/about/ and click the "Quarterly newsletter" link. We look forward to seeing you in Minneapolis in June 2015! by Yvonne Hileman on 05/01/2014 at 3:40 p.m.

  • When will the Churchwide Gathering link be updated with the information on the 2015 CWG? We are anxious to get the details, so that women can start planning, especially in regards to registration costs. Thank you. by Gail on 04/27/2014 at 11:39 p.m.
