In 1988, Presbyterian Women was created, bringing together women’s organizations from the two denominations that had merged to become the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). Practices, programs and faithful women from both United Presbyterian Women (United Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A.) and Women of the Church (Presbyterian Church in the United States) were joined to form Presbyterian Women.
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!
Sometime in 2013, take a moment to celebrate all that Presbyterian Women has achieved and meant for people around the world, and all that we will continue to accomplish. Your continued support of the organization—through prayer, financial support and participation—will mean transformation for many more lives and hearts.
You are welcome to reproduce this liturgy, which both celebrates and holds in prayer Presbyterian Women, for your PW group’s or church’s celebration of Presbyterian Women’s 25th anniversary.
