Presbyterian Women’s Ministry includes all women of the Presbyterian Church (USA). PW is a social and service group which also provides opportunities to study God’s Word. All women of the church are invited to participate in PW activities.
In 2021, we offered the following opportunities:
Women’s Fellowship Group (monthly meetings, September through May)
Sarah Women’s Fellowship meets at 7:00 pm on the 2nd Tuesday in members’ homes. For the beginning of the year (January through May), a Bible study from Life Guide Studies entitled, “Women of the Old Testament” was completed. For the second half of the year and continuing in 2022, a similar study, “Women of the New Testament” is underway.
Plant and Bake Sale (May)
After being unable to hold this annual event in 2020, we were able to do so once again and with your support raised nearly $1,000. Thanks to those who provided special dinners and/or baked goods and those who purchased them as well as those who purchased all of the many flowering annuals and plants that were available for sale.
On-Line Christmas Auction and Spaghetti Supper To Go (December)
Thanks to the on-line expertise and assistance from Jennifer McWilliams, once again the Christmas auction was offered on-line. With the many and varied donations we received, (130 items were donated) and the “customers” who purchased these items, we had another successful auction, raising over $2,200. In addition, on the Saturday evening in December when we would normally have held the in-person supper and auction, we again offered our spaghetti and meatball dinner (along with salad, roll and dessert) “to go” and you supported us in that endeavor as well. Thank you for shopping and dining with us!!
In 2021, with motives of sharing and service, we supported the following organizations:
- Presbyterian Women’s National Mission, PC(USA)
- Heifer International
- Presbyterian Pan American School, Kingsville TX
- PW National Mission (Least Coin offering)
- Bridges Safe House, Cedar Hill TX
- Mission of Good Shepherd Children’s Home, Belize
- FPCD (church gardens)
We look forward to opportunities in 2022 to continue FPCD’s mission of Connecting with God and sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with the community. We hope you will join us.
