From: Janet W. Brown, Moderator, [email protected], 610-306-0051

Subject: Reminder of Coming Events

Date: November 7, 2013

Thank you for your faithfulness. So much has been accomplished by Presbyterian Women in the past 25 years through second-mile giving to mission. The role of women in society across the world is very different today than during the last century. We continue to work on sharing God’s radical hospitality, but I know that you are doing much in your local congregations to meet the needs of those seeking relief from hunger and discouragement.

We will gather again for the PW Christmas Luncheon at the Oxford Presbyterian Church on Saturday, December 7. This is such a wonderful day. Ample parking is available. We always have a great turnout and are overwhelmed by the generosity of our women. You are encouraged to contact Vice Moderator Priscilla Peters, [email protected]  with questions or a request for a display table. Dawn’s Place will be the recipient of our donations and offering. Registration is at 9:30 a.m. with the day’s program beginning at 10 a.m.

  • If you have not already done so, please send your pledge forms now to Grace Marable, 1721 E. Tulpehocken St., Philadelphia, PA 19138. Pledges will be dedicated on December 7.
  • The Coordinating Team of the Presbyterian Women in the Presbytery of Philadelphia will be reviewing funding requests at their January 25, 2014 meeting.
  • The fourth quarter issue of the Quarterly News for Presbyterian Women Leaders is available at www.presbyterianwomen.org. Select About PW, then select Quarterly Newsletter.
  • Many of you are wearing orange on the 25th of the month. Not sure how this will go on Christmas day, but I know that a T-Shirt is now available through Presbyterian Distribution Service to recognize the “Wear Orange” campaign.

Flyers will be available for the Spring Gathering and Synod Gathering at Waynesburg University on the PW display table in December. Prayers for your journey. Wishing you peace and a blessed Thanksgiving.
