Presbyterian Women  

Presbyterian Women (PW) includes all women who are members of Hudson Memorial Presbyterian Church (HMPC).  We join in various ways for fellowship, Bible study, mission projects and service to our church.  All women of the church are invited to participate in our Fall, Winter and Spring Gatherings.  Presbyterian Women sponsors an annual retreat to share fellowship and further our spiritual journey.

 

Our 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 (USA), and witnesses to the promise of God’s kingdom.

Activities of the PW at Hudson

We hold two PW Gatherings

  • Winter – This gathering will focus on an outreach project with a guest speaker and discussion.

  • Spring –  We install new officers, announcem our Honory Life Member, honor the organizations selected for the Birthday offering and recap our year.

 

We sponsor the annual retreat for all women of the church.  

 

We host receptions for the entire congregation:

  • Following the Joy Celebration service in December

  • Honoring the Confirmands in May

  • Others as requested

 

We sponsor mission, outreach and benevolence projects throughout the year.  These have recently included:

  • Collection of school supplies kits in early fall for Haiti

  • Collection of personal hygiene health kits for migrant workers in late spring

  • Contributing to the PC (USA) “Healthy Mothers, Healthy Families” project

  • Collection of adult and baby personal care items for the Women’s Center of Wake County

  • Recent benevolences sponsored by Circle members’ pledges include the Women’s Center of Wake County, Note in the Pocket and Children’s Hope Alliance

We honor babies born to members of HMPC by preparing a meal for the family and by keeping in touch with the baby’s family for the exciting first year. Click here to learn more about the baby ministry.

 

We participate in Church Women United activities, and recently hosted the annual Human Rights gathering in September.

 

 

Women's Circles at HMPC

Many women at HMPC choose to belong to one or more Circles, which are small groups that meet once a month September through May.  Circles meet in members’ homes or in the church for Bible study, sharing personal news and news of church activities, and then share light refreshments.  Circle members make annual pledges (above their annual church pledges) to cover the cost of study books, help fund the mission and outreach projects of PW, and part of the costs of other PW activities.  We currently have seven circles which meet a variety of women’s interests.  Please contact the PW Devotions Chair or Membership Chair or Circle Leader to find the circle (or circles) that best suits your interests.

We invite and encourage you to join the fellowship of a PW circle and share our friendship and fun!
