Women of Faith Awards

The Women of Faith Awards, sponsored by Racial Equity & Women’s Intercultural Ministries in the Presbyterian Mission Agency, usually honors the award recipients at an awards breakfast during the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the decision to hold an abbreviated, virtual 224th General Assembly (2020 and the PC(USA)’s travel ban and restrictions on in-person meetings, we regret that the Women of Faith Awards Breakfast has been canceled. We will privately honor the awardees with their awards. We give thanks to God for their witness. We continue to be inspired by all they do to show the love of Christ in this uncertain time.

Many of us know women who have raised the economic level of entire families and communities. We also know women who have provided educational opportunities for girls and boys, joining alongside poor communities, listening to dreams for a better future, and supporting communities as they determine how to make their dreams reality. Gratitude abounds for these women who “see those who are hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison” and give of themselves to serve others, through the power of Jesus Christ, who is Savior of all.

Celebrate the Gifts of Women Sunday

And a Sword Will Pierce Your Own Soul Too | by Rhashell D. Hunter | March 6, 2022

This year, Celebrate the Gifts of Women reflects “on the circumstances of Jesus’ birth and childhood, focusing especially on young Mary, who heard Simeon’s prophetic words about the opposition Jesus would endure that Mary would also feel.” Mothers, parents, and families experience the impact of today’s economic, political, and racial climate, yet witness God’s power to overcome challenges: Christ has preceded us in every challenge.

Though Celebrate the Gifts of Women Sunday is March 6, 2022, congregations or women’s groups may use the resource on any day chosen to honor women’s survival during challenging circumstances.
