Presbyterian Women (PW) is an independent organization within the PC(USA) which offers all women the opportunity to practice their faith in the midst of a caring community. In addition to supporting the mission programs of the PC(USA), PW also partners with various secular and faith based organizations as the women fulfill the PW Purpose at the congregation, presbytery, synod, and churchwide levels.
PW Treasure and Representative on Committee on Shared Ministry:
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
To build an inclusive, caring community of women that strengthens the Presbyterian Church (USA) and witnesses to the promise of God’s kingdom
We hope all Foothills Presbyterian Women will join us as we discuss:
The 2018–2019 Presbyterian Women/Horizons Bible study, God’s Promise: I Am With You. (see below)

In nine lessons, this study traces God’s recurring promise of presence from Genesis through the Gospels—from the beginning to the end of the age. God’s “I am with you” promise is spoken in varied circumstances and to many different people throughout scripture. Some instances may be quite familiar, while others might surprise you.
Throughout this study, participants will reflect on how the promise of God’s presence speaks beyond the pages of the Bible, to their own circumstances. Individually and as a community, we will be encouraged to both see and seek God’s presence with us in the extraordinary and the ordinary experiences of our lives.
The author of Hebrews asserts, God “has said, ‘I will never leave you or forsake you’” (Heb. 13:5). This study will confirm that God has, indeed, made and kept that very promise, again and again. (taken from the PW website)
