Montreat Women's Conference.jpg
 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

Pledges from members and supporters of Presbyterian Women fund our activities and benevolence contributions. We hold PW Gatherings to highlight local mission efforts and honor outstanding members for their leadership.

 

  • We sponsor periodic retreats for all women of the church.

Women's Circles at HMPC

Small group experiences (currently meeting virtually or observing safe distancing) for fellowship and Bible study are available for women at Hudson by participating in one of the Circles of Presbyterian Women.  These are small groups that meet once a month from September through May.  There are both daytime and evening meeting options. The current Bible Study is Into the Light: Finding Hope Through Prayers of Lament.

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