Affiliated with the national Presbyterian Women organization, Women@Second hosts events, studies, service opportunities, and more! We welcome anyone in the Second community to participate. Join us!
The Presbyterian Women (PW) Purpose: 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.
Anyone who supports the Purpose in any way is participating in PW. So even if you’re just learning about PW, there’s a good chance you’re already supporting PW—in spirit or in action!
Won’t you consider joining us in person?
Presbyterian Women are aligned nationally under a shared Purpose, but the gifts of the Spirit allow us to live into the Purpose in our own, unique ways. Some individuals or groups find themselves particularly drawn to one or two points of the Purpose.
Other groups or individuals consciously work toward fulfilling all points. There are many faithful ways to live out the PW Purpose! For details, please visit our national website.
