Presbyterian Women

Attention, women in the congregations of the Presbytery of WNY!!
As women in the church, do you seek meaningful ways to live out your faith in the midst of a caring community of women?

Check out Presbyterian Women (PW)! 

For more than 200 years PW groups have strengthened the Presbyterian Church and played a major role in sharing the good news of Jesus Christ and in witnessing to the promise of God’s kingdom.

All women of the presbytery are invited to become active members of PW, whether individually or in a group.
To learn about active PW groups in the congregations of the Presbytery of WNY, contact Marilyn Koszarek, 694-2769 , the current moderator of the PW Coordinating Team. Click here for a welcome letter from Marilyn

PW groups across the presbytery are diverse in every way, from their style of organization to their activities, but they all seek to be guided by the “PW Purpose.”

Presbyterian Women 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.

All women --individuals and groups-- are invited to three presbytery-wide events, called “gatherings,” organized by the PW in the Presbytery of WNY. These gatherings are held in the fall, winter and spring. These events engage the spirit and energy of PW women through workshops, speakers, and worship.  Renewed and refreshed, participants return to their local congregations empowered to follow the call of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
