Presbyterian Women in the Synod

Presbyterian Women in the Synod (PWS) exists to build community, affirm women’s calls to leadership and serve as a link between Presbyterian Women in the Presbytery and Presbyterian Women Churchwide.

At the most basic level, every PWS group

  • elects its own leadership — the coordinating team
  • plans and implements a yearly program and determines its own budget
  • participates in PW programming, such as use of the Horizons Bible study, celebration giving and mission interpretation
  • supports the mission of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) worldwide through education, interpretation, global awareness and financial and material gifts
  • develops the leadership abilities of women
  • preserves historical records of PW
  • maintains connections with PW at other governing body levels
  • encourages support of PW’s affiliations

The programming for a Presbyterian Women in the Synod group depends on the level of involvement the group has committed to. Some PWS groups are very active with multiple projects; others meet once or twice a year for projects that are particularly important.
