Presbyterian Women

The women of First Church enjoy a garden party tea in June 2011 featuring a presentation on the History of the Women of Independence.

Presbyterian Women meet in Westminster Hall on the second Wednesdays in March and September for a brief business meeting, luncheon and an informative program.  A Christmas Tea is held in December, and a Summer Tea in June.  Circles also meet in the daytime or evening for study and fellowship.  Presbyterian Women offer their time, talents, and money to support various projects, including Children’s Services, and many other specially selected causes.  Horizons, an official publication of Presbyterian Women, is the primary resource for programs, information and inspiration.

Fellowship, caring for each other, and Bible study are the major focus of Presbyterian Women.  Every woman who is a member of First Presbyterian Church is by reason of that membership a part of Presbyterian Women.  However, all women are welcome.   To become an active member of Presbyterian Women, see information in the monthly newsletter, “PresbyTimes”, or call the church office at (816) 252-6662 .

Registration for Menninger Bible Study is in early September each year at Westminster Hall.  The class meets each Friday at 10:00 a.m. with an identical class at 1:00 p.m.  This is a four-year journey through the Bible.  If you have any questions or would like to join this class, call the church office at (816) 252-6662.

Purpose:

  • 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

Activities of Presbyterian women at First Presbyterian Church include the Sew & Sows, the Reader’s Corner Book Club, and the WINGS study and discussion group.
