Celebrate the Gifts of Women 2012 liturgy
On Celebrate the Gifts of Women Sunday, March 4, 2012, we honor women who contribute their gifts to the church and community. In 2012, the Presbyterian Planning Calendar designates March 4, 2012 as Celebrate the Gifts of Women Sunday. International Women’s Day is March 8 and many congregations choose the Sunday closest to that date for their annual celebration. However, this resource may be used whenever your congregation or women’s group chooses to celebrate women.
The Celebrate the Gifts of Women resource, written by Frances Taylor Gench, includes a worship service with a call to worship, prayer of confession, suggested hymns, suggested scripture readings, a litany of remembrance and renewal, preaching and program suggestions, and recommended resources for further study.
