Happy 25th anniversary, Presbyterian Women!

25th anniversary poster In 1988, Presbyterian Women was created, bringing together the women’s organizations
from the two denominations that merged to become the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).  So for 25 years now, our beloved organization has been witnessing to the promise of God’s kingdom and transforming lives around the world. And of course, this young group is carrying on the more-than-200-year tradition of Presbyterian women meeting, praying and acting together in shared love of God!

So in 2013, celebrate with us!PW 25th anniversary pin

Moving forward: $25 for 25

Another exciting part of PW’s recognition of this milestone year is a new fundraising/stewardship campaign—$25 for 25. All gifts from the campaign will benefit the PW Mission Pledge, which supports every PW mission and ministry—no exceptions.

Recognize this milestone year and support the $25-for-25 campaign in two ways:

1. Give a gift of $25 (or more). Donate now or send a check, with “$25 for 25” written in the memo line, to Presbyterian Women Remittance Processing, PO Box 643652, Pittsburgh PA 15264-3652.

2. Participate in the pledge matching in your synod. Generous donors have agreed to match funds given in their synods.
