Give to the PW Mission Pledge
Your gift to the PW Mission Pledge makes possible nearly every program and ministry of Presbyterian Women. When you give in your congregation, that gift makes possible programs and community in your congregation, throughout your presbytery and synod and at the churchwide level.
Now is the time to make your pledge to support Presbyterian Women in 2016. The 2016 Mission Pledge packet was mailed in late July to congregations (and to treasurers and moderators of PW in the synod, presbytery and congregation), but is also available for download. Use the materials in the packet—pledge forms, cards, charts and stories—to understand how much your support makes possible. And make sure that others know the same!
PW: Where we’ve been and where we’re going
During the 2015 Churchwide Gathering in Minneapolis 2012–2015 PW Churchwide Moderator Mary Cook Jorgenson and PW Executive Director Susan Jackson Dowd led two sections of a workshop on the history, current work and future of Presbyterian Women. The presentation includes specifics on many of PW’s programs and ministries and information about the PC(USA), including the change in the number of synods and how women can stay engaged in PW if their church leaves the PC(USA). Download the presentation.
Give to the 2015 Thank Offering
We invite you to open your hearts to the 32 recipients of funds from the 2014 Thank Offering campaign. These recipients include several programs that minister to those at risk of homelessness, who are currently homeless or are transitioning from shelters. These recipients also include after-school programs in areas where children are at risk or suffering from poverty. Other recipients are training women to lead community development and women's empowerment programs in Sudan, Rwanda and other impoverished areas. Forty percent of the money granted in 2015 will fund health ministries. Learn more about all of the recipients or find resources to promote the Thank Offering in your congregation, presbytery and synod. And give generously to the 2015 Thank Offering so that more life-giving ministries may receive support in 2016. The goal for the 2015 offering is $900,000.

Hi Kelly - Thank you for your comment! While we are updating our website, if you would like to see one or more of our products, please email Carissa Herold, Carissa.email@example.com .
I would like to make a suggestion: Please include photos of items available via the PW Boutique as well as other PW resources. Not only would it make shopping more efficient, but it might also encourage more women to browse and make purchases. Thank you.
Hi Lori, YES, reemie baby caps are still needed! All caps are sent to the Brethren Maryland for shipment to Africa. Booties are not needed at this time. However, newborn baby blankets are welcome, whether purchased or made from flannel or similar soft, lightweight material and hemmed to 36” by 45”. There are patterns in the back of the Together In Service Guide. You can use your own pattern, keeping in mind that the babies for whom the caps are intended weigh an average of just 3.5 – 4 pounds. Thanks for your mission work!
