Membership in Presbyterian Women is open to all women of the First Presbyterian Church. There is friendship and fellowship for all who choose to participate in or support Presbyterian Women in any way. Our ongoing commitment is to build an inclusive community of women of the church, to grow our faith through prayer and Bible study, to support the mission of the church, and to work for justice and peace.
