Presbyterian Women Purpose
Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves:
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 witness to the promise of God's kingdom.

The Bible Study was facilitated by Joyce Woodrow and was based on Chapter 4 of the Max Lucado book,  "The Touch of the Masters Hand- Studies on Jesus"  The chapter led to a discussion on hearing Good's music. Our  Bible passages included Matthew 13: 3-9 and 18-23, James 1:22-25 and other passages suggested within the chapter. 

Diane led a special memorial for Barbara, our sister, dear to everyone’s heart, who entered God’s Kingdom last week. Beautiful prayers were read before and after sharing memories/stories about Barbara.

Next meeting is March 3, 2020 at Annex, hosted by Connie Harley - -a Bible Study leader is needed for Lesson 5 in Life Lessons with Max Lucado
