Presbyterian Women

Purpose: Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves:

To nurture our faith through prayer and Bible study

To support the mission of the church worldwide

• To work for justice and peace, 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.

PW is connectional at the church, presbytery, synod and churchwide levels, and is an all-inclusive body supporting Bible study, mission and worshipful work.  PW and the Presbytery of Middle Tennessee share common ministry and mission goals.

Through elected officers, PW of Middle Tennessee is the primary communication link between Presbyterian Women and the Presbytery of Middle Tennessee. Any Ruling Elder serving as representative from Presbyterian Women has the privilege of voice and vote on the floor of the presbytery.

The ministry and work of Presbyterian Women in Middle Tennessee are performed with the purpose of building an inclusive, caring community that strengthens the Presbytery of Middle Tennessee and the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), and witnesses to the promise of God’s kingdom.

Presbyterian Women’s Pig Project for the Women of the Presbytery of the Petén

Based on the model from Heifer International, the women of the Presbytery of the Petén described a dream of how to help their church – a way for each Presbyteriale to help each church raise money. They want to buy two pigs for each church, plus enough wood and wire to build the pens. They would fatten the pigs, breed them, then sell them.
