About The Presbyterian Women
About Us

The Presbyterian Women of Buchanan First lead a very active and consistent life.  From a weekly Bible study circle to a monthly scheduled “Focus on Giving”, members of our ladies’ group can be found in and around our church.  During the summer, we welcome our interns into our class, as well as, our private homes.  We have four hostess committees and cover a quarterly fellowship dinner plus providing food for our members and friends during illnesses and bereavement.  We are always available for a quick comfort meal in our “Ruth and Mabel Ministry”.  Two of our ladies were well-known for providing food, i.e. soup and bread, for anyone in need.  In honor them, we try to follow their excellent examples.  Our focus on giving covers the local human society, the domestic violence shelter, school supplies, children’s hospital gifts bags, “The Connection” (a local group for disadvantaged youth), the local food bank and art or bingo supplies for the local Heritage Hall nursing facility.  We also provide gifts baskets at Christian for the shut-in members.  We sponsor the Hanging of the Greens at Christmas.  Household and baby showers are offered and given when appropriate.  Basically, if you want help, we will do the best we can to supply and provide it. 

Our PW has many members who have served on Abingdon Presbytery committees.  Our church hosted the Spring Gathering of the PW in April 2017.  We have PW members who are in charge of our church’s website and Facebook pages.  All the women of the church are given opportunities to join in the activities and to be part of the group.  From a cheerfully decorated Fellowship Hall, to well maintained classrooms, anyone can see the Buchanan First PW’s handiwork present.  Hospitality is one of our utmost goals.  Praying for those in need and studying God’s word is a top priority for our PW.
