Happy 25th anniversary, Presbyterian Women!
In July 1988, Presbyterian Women was created, bringing together the best of the women’s organizations from the two denominations that merged to become the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). So for 25 years now, our beloved organization has been witnessing to the promise of God’s kingdom and transforming lives around the world. And of course, this young group is carrying on the more-than-200-year tradition of Presbyterian women meeting, praying and acting together in shared love of God!
So from July 2013–July 2014, celebrate with us! Learn more about the logos, online celebrations and resources available to commemorate 25 years of Presbyterian Women!
Join Celebration Giving Training
Celebration Giving representatives (CGR) are critical leaders who assist with interpretation and promotion of giving opportunities within Presbyterian Women, and can represent their congregation, presbytery and/or synod. Training for Celebration Giving representatives takes place via webinar one day each month. The next monthly training session will be held on March 20. Two identical sessions will be held, one at 2 pm EST, one at 7 pm EST. You only need to attend one session to receive the information. Training will be held again on April 10 and May 22.
Even if not serving in the CGR role, any Presbyterian woman interested in promoting giving and learning more about their monetary investments in PW mission and ministry will benefit from participation in the training.
