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 bible study, serving and fellowship opportunities through Circles, mission projects, and fundraising and outreach. The PW honors a Covenant person each year with an Honorary Lifetime Achievement Award.
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 at any time 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 Lori Donley or call (512) 825-0275.
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.
