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. Download these posters and share them widely—in newsletters, on bulletin boards, anywhere that you can share all that PW is and does. View the posters.
And, this wildly popular series inspired Mary Cook Jorgenson to write a skit about all that Presbyterian Women does and is. Download the skit.
A new website for Presbyterian Women
Work is underway to create a new and improved website for Presbyterian Women. The new site will merge content from Presbyterian Women's website (these pages!), the Horizons Magazine and Bible study website and the Gathering website. A condensed version of the Horizons website will be available during this redesign. Click on the "Horizons magazine and Bible study" link in the left-hand navigation of this site.

Where we’ve been, where we’re going
During the 2015 Churchwide Gathering in Minneapolis 2012–2015 PW Churchwide Moderator Mary Cook Jorgenson and PW Executive Director Susan Jackson Dowd led two sections of a workshop on the history, current work and future of Presbyterian Women. The presentation includes specifics on many of PW’s programs and ministries and information about the PC(USA), including the change in the number of synods and how women can stay engaged in PW if their church leaves the PC(USA).

Gail, we anticipate having the Churchwide Gathering web page live by the middle of this month. In the meantime, the hotel has been selected, the registration cost set—and the good news is that both will cost less than in 2012! Registration is just $395 for the 2015 Gathering ($125 for single days), and rooms at the Hyatt are $169 plus tax (for up to four in a room). Put it on your calendar—June 18–21, 2015! Put a couple bucks back each day from now until then, and you can almost have it paid for by the time you get there! Can't go? Sponsor someone who can! For more details, check the latest issue of our quarterly newsletter. Go to www.presbyterianmission.org/ministries/pw/about/ and click the "Quarterly newsletter" link. We look forward to seeing you in Minneapolis in June 2015!
When will the Churchwide Gathering link be updated with the information on the 2015 CWG? We are anxious to get the details, so that women can start planning, especially in regards to registration costs. Thank you.
