Happy 25th anniversary, Presbyterian Women!
In 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 in 2013, celebrate with us! Learn more about the logos, online celebrations and resources available to commemorate 25 years of Presbyterian Women!

Join Celebration Giving Representative 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 final training for the year will be held on December 12. 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.
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.
