Presbyterian Women

We welcome all women to join and be a part of the Mission.

Helpful resources for churches:

Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves

  • to nurture our faith through prayer and Bible study,
  • to support the mission of the church worldwide,
  • to work for justice and peace, and to build an inclusive, caring community of women that strengthens the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and witnesses to the promise of God’s kingdom.

Today’s Presbyterian Women—and yes, that means we Presbyterian Women are still around and still relevant—tip our hats (of the pillbox, baseball, sun, straw, safari, Derby, knitted, ski and other varieties) to the women of faith who have journeyed this road of faith before us. For some of us, that means our grandmothers. For some of us, that means our great-great grandmothers!

Well before United Presbyterian Women (UPW) of the United Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A. (UPCUSA) and Women of the Church (WOC) of the Presbyterian Church in the U.S. (PCUS) united in 1988 to form Presbyterian Women, women of the church were busy transforming the church and the world as Christ’s servants, ready to speak truth and find solutions.
