Presbyterian Women's Purpose Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves to the nurture of our faith though 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 witness to the promise of God's kingdom.
Meets every second Tuesday, beginning at 10am, in the Fireside Room. Join us for fellowship and Bible study. We support missions through our annual bake sale, and other works. Please join us, we would love to see you.

On June 12 we celebrated our year, and the beginning of summer with a wonderful and fun potluck. We are on a hiatus for a few months, but took time to plan for the fall and winter months ahead. We will be busy with Shoeboxes, Bake Sale and our Christmas Program, among other things. It is a joy to be a part of PWC. All women are members and all are welcome! Come join us this fall to kick off a really busy season of doing God's work.
PWC Mission Outreaches Mercy Ship, Shared Hope International, Twin City Mission for Women, Toledo Food Bank, Toledo Toy Drive, Operation Christmas Child, and other local mission outreaches.
Fellowship of the Least Coin Fellowship of the Least Coin links prayer and "least coin" in a very significant way, as the least coin becomes the symbol of prayer for peace and reconciliation. It was begun in 1956 by Shanti Solomon of India and continues today as a global ecumenical prayer movement. As the coins, symbolizing prayers, are gathered from around the world, they become grants for special projects of evangelism, service, ecumenical solidarity, awareness building among women and relief throughout the world.

Birthday Offering The Birthday Offering is one of Presbyterian Women’s two offerings. Received in the spring each year, it gives women a tangible way to celebrate the blessings in their lives. The Birthday Offering funds up to five projects each year, in amounts of $100,000 to $300,000 each. The recipients are selected before the offering is received, so grant amounts depend on the gifts received. Reprinted from PC(USA) presbyterian.org
