Presbyterian Women

Moderator: Carolyn Shaw

Presbyterian Women of the Congregation of Central Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), Nevada Iowa, of the Southwest Cluster of the Presbytery of North Central Iowa, the Synod of Lakes and Prairies.

Purpose of group: to nurture our faith through prayer and Bible study, to support the mission of the Church worldwide, to work for justice and peace, and to build an inclusive, caring community of women that strengthens the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and witnesses to the promise of God’s kingdom.

Presbyterian Women is a church-wide organization whose membership is open to all women of the church, who choose to participate or be supportive of Presbyterian Women in any way.  Presbyterian Women intentionally seeks the membership of women from all racial and ethnic groups, so that the organization may reflect a vision of the whole church as a community of mutually independent women, and one in which diversity contributes to wholeness. 

Projects include the biannual Salad Luncheon, Sewing Ladies, and an annual missions project.
