Presbyterian Women Mission: Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves to:
Circle meetings are held monthly from September through June. The schedule of meetings may vary, so check the LPC Monthly Newsletter, This Week at LPC, and LPC Sunday News for meeting dates, times and locations. Circle groups include:
Tuesday Morning Circle - Our Tuesday Morning Circle is our Bible study group which meets on the first Tuesday of the month at 10:00 a.m. in the Coleman Room.
Little Women - This group of the Presbyterian Women is open to young women in the 3rd through 5th grades, with a goal of bridging the generational gaps between younger and older women. We encourage, promote and challenge all women, younger and elderly, during their spiritual journeys while offering the bonds of friendship, support and creative exchange of ideas and information. Please contact Nancy Carlton through the church office for more information.
Circles & Squares - Many years ago, one of our Presbyterian Women’s circles found that the men were hanging around during meetings so much of the time that including them seemed the right thing to do, and “Circles and Squares” was born. This couples dinner group remains a robust and active circle under Presbyterian Women today with 20-30 people in attendance at monthly dinner meetings hosted by members at their homes. Participants bring a salad, entrée or dessert to share with the group. For more information, please contact Joy Atkins or Lenora Wilson.
Knit Wits - This is a ministry of ladies who knit prayer shawls and lap blankets for those in need of comfort. They generally work on their projects at home.
Honorary Life Membership - An Honorary Life Membership (HLM) in Presbyterian Women is conferred upon a woman or man in recognition of faithful service in some area of the church’s work. Moderators, teachers, leaders, officers, pastors and missionaries have been among the recipients of this honor. LPC has been granting this honor since 1960.
