Presbyterian Women, as an organization, works to fulfill the four basic commitments found in our statement of purpose: to nurture our faith, support the mission of the Church worldwide, to work for justice and peace and to build an inclusive caring community of women.
Our two circles meet monthly for Bible study and fellowship. Tabitha Circle meets on the second Tuesday of the month at 9:15 a.m., and Ruth Circle meets on the second Wednesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. in the Adult Lounge.. The settings of these meetings vary according to the size and needs of the group, but they always strengthen the fellowship in the group.
In addition, Mission Sewing meets the third Tuesday of the month from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. and spends three hours working on items as part of our mission work. Sewing is very broadly defined to include other kinds of needlework, and skill is not a requirement. There is always someone willing to share their expertise with a beginner. Projects have included bassinet pads, health kits for Haiti, pillowcase dresses, shorts for young boys, baby gowns, mats for sleeping, school kits for Church World Service, and hundreds of ointment products for Haiti.
We support a number of different missions financially throughout the year, including Friends for Health in Haiti, Homefront, Mercer Street Friends Food Bank, Church World Service, and Trenton Area Soup Kitchen. Circles also assemble health and school kits for Church World Services and support TASK.
