Presbyterian Women strives to fulfill our “reason for being” by committing to nurture our faith through prayer and Bible study, to support the mission of church worldwide, to work for justice and peace, and to build an inclusive, caring community that strengthens the Presbyterian Church(USA) and witnesses to the promise of God’s kingdom. The Coordinating Team provides assistance in implementing this purpose by promoting communication among our churches and organizing annual gatherings.
