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!
