Presbyterian Women (PW) is part of a national group that offers opportunities for women to grow in their faith and in their friendships. PW offers learning, serving and fellowship opportunities through Bible study circles, mission projects, and special events and trips. The PW honors a Covenant woman each year with a lifetime achievement award.
PW Bylaws Update, March 2019 The PW Bylaws were last revised in 2012. The purpose for this revision is to reflect the way we are currently doing the work of PW at Covenant. The deadline for comments is April 3. We will vote on the revision at our May 8 Spring Luncheon. Any questions or comments should be emailed to a member of the bylaws review committee: Julie Stillwell, Lisa Fry, Maria Raper, or Melissa Matthews.
PW Circles meet once a month during the school year for Bible study, prayer, fellowship, and mission. These circles of faith and friendship welcome new members while embracing long-time connections. We encourage women to find a circle that works best for their schedule or start one of their own. For more information, email Diane West or call (512) 534-0110.
Deborah meets at 12 p.m. in SA 103 on the 2nd Thursday of the month.
Ester-Dorcas meets at 10 a.m. in SA 103 on the 2nd Tuesday of the month.
Sarah-Elizabeth meets at 9:15 a.m. in CO 208 on the 2nd Thursday of the month.
Each year the Presbyterian Women of Covenant award an Honorary Life Membership to a special woman in recognition of faithful service to God and our church.
