Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ
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,
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
The Birthday Offering is a PW offering collected in the spring of each year to celebrate the blessings in the lives of Presbyterian Women. The offering funds up to five projects that are not included in ongoing General Assembly mission support, such as agricultural development, child care, community organization, criminal justice, drug counseling, economic justice, elderly care, employment training, homelessness, literacy, violence and women’s concerns.
The Thank Offering is a PW offering collected in the fall of each year that gives women a tangible way to express their gratitude for the special blessings in their lives. The offering funds projects such as agricultural development, child care, community organization, criminal justice, drug counseling, economic justice, elderly care, employment training, homelessness, literacy, violence and women’s concerns. At least 40 percent of this offering supports health ministries throughout the world. The remaining 60 percent funds new creative ideas for mission.
Fellowship of the Least Coin
The Fellowship of the Least Coin (FLC) is an ecumenical prayer movement focused on peace, justice and reconciliation. As each of us offers prayers, we should set aside a least coin as a symbol of our prayers. As they are collected, these coins join many others from all parts of the world to advance the causes of justice, peace and reconciliation and to support a variety of projects that help women and children achieve a better life.
The Santa Fe Women’s Circles are:
- Martha Circle – 2nd Wednesday at 9:30 a.m. in Fellowship Hall
- Hannah Circle – 3rd Tuesday at 7:00p.m. at member’s homes
Additional PW activities include Recognition of Women Sunday in which Sunday morning worship service is conducted by the women of Santa Fe.
