Presbyterian Women (PW) is a church-wide fellowship organization that includes all the women of Fourth Presbyterian Church, seeking fellowship, mission and bible study as sisters in Christ. PW offers many opportunities for individual spiritual growth and service through Bible study, prayer, mission/witness, and congregational care. Circles meet the second Tuesday of each month during the school year beginning with a joint meeting in September and ending in May. Each year, the PW Retreat provides women a chance to form deeper friendships during a Friday evening though Saturday lunch conference.
Thank Offering boxes will be collected at the November Circle meetings or they may be turned in to the church office. 100% of Thank Offering donations support programs that "relieve pain, provide clean water, alleviate homelessness, provide educational opportunities, promote health, and improve the lives of women and children throughout the world." –Presbyterian Women USA
