Presbyterian Women’s Purpose

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

  • to work for justice and peace
  • to build an inclusive, caring community of women that strengthens the PCUSA and witnesses to the promise of God’s kingdom

Letter from Your Moderator

Hello Women of Saint Andrews!

I’m excited to serve as moderator of the Saint Andrews Presbyterian Women this year. As we prepare
for the upcoming church year, I want to welcome you to a year of community, fellowship and opportunities to
serve within our church, our surrounding community and our world. I also want to share some information
about the women leading us this year, encourage you to get to know them and to participate in
many of the activities that we hope to have this year. We hope that our plans are not waylaid by the COVID-19 pandemic, but
time will tell, of course.

Our women’s circles offer an opportunity to join a small community of women within the church who make a big difference within our church family! Our circles meet once a month from September through May. We have four active circles at this time. If you are interested in joining a circle or in starting a new circle, please let me know. Here are our circles with their meeting information:

Priscilla Circle — meets in member homes on the 3rd Monday of each month @ 7:15 PM. Amy Brown is the
facilitator for this circle, and their study for the year is Great Psalms of the Bible by J. Clinton McCann Jr.

Rachel Circle — meets at the church on the 2nd Friday of each month @ 12:00 PM. Laura Marquis is the
facilitator of this circle, and their study for the year is the Horizons Bible Study — What My Grandmothers
Taught Me: Learning from the Women in Matthew’s Genealogy of Jesus by Merryl Blair.

Ruth Circle — meets at the church on the 2nd Tuesday of each month @7:00 PM. Sherry Hay and Nancy Homer
are the facilitators of this circle, and their study for the year is the PW/Horizons Bible Study — What My
Grandmothers Taught Me: Learning from the Women in Matthew’s Genealogy of Jesus by Merryl Blair.

Rosemarie Sholl are the facilitators for this circle, and their study for the year is the PW/Horizons Bible

Please consider your personal gifts and talents and where they might support our purpose as Presbyterian Women.

I look forward to serving as moderator this year, hope that we are able to meet often and become more
connected as the year proceeds. Please get in touch with any questions or inspirations!

Cheerfully in Christ,

Sue Parks, Moderator
