Presbyterian Women 2019

The PW is concerned about our environment. We are taking steps to do the following: cut down on the use of styrofoam by not using it anymore than necessary and by using the reusable grocery bags seen below. Let’s do our share to help!

Our church is looking like fall! Thanks to all the ladies who were able to help with cleaning and decorating this afternoon

Our Presbyterian reusable grocery bags are ready! Help cut down on the use of too many plastic bags by using these strong and roomy bags for your shopping needs. Easily carry your groceries or other items in these attractive bags. See Connie Bausell if you’re interested in one (or more)

The PW Focus on Giving for the month of October is for The Connection at Hurley. They need hygiene products for boys and girls (shampoo, toothbrushes and toothpaste, deodorant, etc) and socks for youth of all ages. Bring on Sunday morning or leave them in the Angel room any day.
