The Mission Pledge of  Presbyterian Women

The 2017 Mission Pledge packet has all the information you need to plan your giving and encourage others to give to Presbyterian Women’s Mission Pledge (annual fund) in 2017. It mailed in July 2016 to congregations, Celebration Giving Representatives and moderators and treasurers of Presbyterian Women in the Presbytery and Synod. These materials are designed for use in PW in the Congregation groups. Download the 2017 Mission Pledge packet.

With stories and charts about what your gifts to the Mission Pledge makes possible, the Mission Pledge packet also includes a letter from PW's Churchwide moderator, Carol Winkler, a checklist/timeline for promoting giving and pledge forms. In July 2017, materials for 2018 will be shipped. If you do not have a PW in the Congregation, you can still support Presbyterian Women by giving to the Mission Pledge online and remaining active in your presbytery, synod and churchwide. Thank you for your generous support of Presbyterian Women!

Think you know Presbyterian Women?

A new series of light-hearted and happily serious posters help show the range of what it means to be Presbyterian Women. Feel free to share (on bulletin boards or refrigerator doors, in newsletters or in circle meetings!). This (gentle) educational campaign will challenge everyone to rethink what it means to be a part of Presbyterian Women. Posters are available for download on the documents tab.
