News from the Presbyterian Women

 

Summer Break from meetings. We'll resume in September!

 

Our ‘Focus on Giving’ is ongoing:

 

·       June we’ll be doing something for The Connection (a youth ministry program at Hurley). Our emphasis will be to collect personal hygiene items.   

July will be items for the Domestic Violence Shelter (they were very grateful for the food given to them this past weekend) and in August we’ll be collecting dog and cat food for the Humane Society.   

 

If you have suggestions for other projects, please share!  Presbyterian Women provide the leadership for these but we welcome ALL members of the church to participate regardless of gender.

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.
