Presbyterian Women offers women in the church meaningful ways to live out their faith in the midst of a caring community of women. For more than 200 years such groups have strengthened the Presbyterian Church by playing a major role in sharing the good news of Jesus Christ and witnessing to the promise of God’s kingdom.
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,
- Support the mission of the church worldwide,
- Work for justice and peace,
- Build an inclusive, caring community of women that strengthens the Presbyterian Church U.S.A. and witnesses to the promise of God’s kingdom.
Our local Presbyterian Women’s Group meets the second Thursday of every month at the church. In January – March, we meet at 1 p.m. and April – December at 7 p.m.
We have a Monthly Bible Study from Horizons, a publication of Presbyterian Women, Inc. This year’s study is called Dispatches to God’s Household; The General Epistles. We also sponsor a Bakeless Bakesale, Upscale Resale, Harvest Dinner as well as a Silent Auction and Christmas Tea – all as fundraisers for the many mission projects that we support.
We have raised and given away more than $11,000 each year with the help of the congregation and the community. All women who call First Presbyterian Church of Elk Rapids, their church are welcome, and all women who are members of First Presbyterian Church are automatically members. Come join us!
