PW Organization

The organization of Presbyterian Women (PW) follows that of the Presbyterian Church (USA):

Presbyterian Women

are all the women members of the PC(USA) nationally, a group that holds a meeting (called the Churchwide Gathering) once every three years.  The joy of worshipping, singing, and learning with several thousand women is tremendous! 

 PW in the Synod

includes all the women members located in a particular synod, a larger regional area with perhaps annual gatherings.   We are a part of the PW in the Synod of the Pacific.

PW in the Presbytery

includes all the women members located in a particular Presbytery, or regional body.  This group usually gathers several times a year.  We are the PW in the Presbytery of the Cascades

PW in the Church

includes all the women members of a particular congregation, who gather for Bible Study, fellowship and worship.  If you are interested in forming a Presbyterian Women’s group in your church, please contact the Cascades PW Moderator. 

The Mission Pledge: PW’s Annual Fund
Presbyterian Women’s annual fund is the Mission Pledge. The Mission Pledge makes possible PW at all levels of the church: from local and regional to national! 
PW is independently funded; that means that the gifts you give to your church or to the PC(USA) do not provide for Presbyterian Women. Gifts given to Presbyterian Women, however, do support the work of the PC(USA) in multiple ways because PW s;supports the work of the PC(USA) in multiple ways. Financial gifts to the Mission Pledge, PW’s annual fund, are often collected in PWC circle meetings. But there are other ways to give (online, by check, and through estate planning). Presbyterian women are always encouraged to give as we are blessed!
