Open to all women in the congregation, the Presbyterian Women’s Council (PWC) consists of six circles that meet for study and reflection and a 19 member Board of Directors that meets monthly.
The PWC’s activities are varied and are woven into the congregation’s life. The PWC tends the Memorial Garden which beautifully welcomes each season of the year. Members of the PWC oversee the first floor of the Zimmerman Wilson house, often conducting tours upon request. The women generously host receptions* for funeral and memorial services and provide scholarship assistance for church members attending mission-related programs. *2022 Update: We regret to announce that although they are a service we treasure, at the present time PWC is not offering memorial receptions. A list of local caterers and restaurants with private rooms for this purpose is being compiled.
The CLAMS group (Creative Ladies Aiding Missions/Creative Ladies and Men Stitching) makes and delivers prayer shawls for members and church friends or family. Hats and scarves are also made and passed along with purchased gloves to Winter Relief, the Lighthouse Shelter and other needy missions. Also, baby hats are made for the NICU at AAMC. No experience necessary. PWC provides the yarn, needles, guidance, and fellowship for all interested in helping.
