The Presbyterian Women is an organization open to all women of the church. The group meets regularly for "circles" (small groups; see schedule below), Bible studies, community service projects, and luncheon fellowships. "Tuesday Together" is the PW's monthly fellowship gathering which usually welcomes a speaker to share about a church ministry or local organization with which the PW is involved or supports. Questions about Presbyterian Women can be answered by Discipleship Coordinator, Martha Zaborowski.
Introduction of 2017-2018 Presbyterian Women's Bible Study: Cloud of Witnesses
Tuesday, August 29, 2017 at FPC
10 a.m. Fellowship
10:30 a.m. Program
12 p.m. Lunch ($7)
All Presbyterian Women from Grace Presbytery are invited to hear Melissa Sevier, author of the 2017-2018 PW Bible study, explore the major themes found in Hebrews and relate them to other parts of our faith tradition, tying them together with the overarching motif of community. The ever present “great cloud of witnesses” (Hebrews 12:1) strengthens and encourages us as “we run with perseverance the race that is set before us looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith.” (Hebrews 12:1b-2).
RSVP with Celeste Falter.
PW Purpose Statement
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 (USA) and witnesses to the promise of God's kingdom.

PW and Church Women United
The Presbyterian Women of FPC supports many community organizations and volunteer agencies through member involvement and awareness efforts.

It brings together women of diverse races, cultures, and traditions in closer Christian fellowship, prayer, advocacy, and action for peace with justice in the world. Specifically, the CWU of Fort Worth supports students at New Lives School, the Fort Worth ISD school for pregnant and parenting students.
