Presbyterian Women is a church wide organization open to all women. We elect our own leadership, plan and implement a yearly program, meet in Circles, and maintain ongoing activities such as Bible study, celebration giving, mission interpretation, and special ministries to the congregation and community.
Presbyterian Women at St. Giles participate in a number of service projects. Ongoing local service opportunities include providing a monthly meal for those living at Emmaus House in Raleigh, providing refreshments at a Christmas party for the residents of the Capital Towers retirement community, and collecting eyeglasses for recycling in specific missions. In addition, members in each circle regularly keep in touch with women who are confined to their homes.
The Lydia Circle meet on the second Tuesday of the month at 9:45am in the Youth Center. We need all current and prospective members to come and help plan our year!
The Esther Circle meet on the second Tuesday of the month at 11:30am in the Adult Center Parlor. Bring your lunch.
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.
Women’s groups in the Presbyterian Church have a powerful history. Since the early 1800s Presbyterian women have organized themselves to support mission and combat social injustices nationally and internationally. While the levels of involvement and recognition from the denominations has varied, women’s dedication to living out God’s call through women’s organizations has remained steady.
