The Presbyterian Women’s group is always looking for new members. If you have been  wanting to get involved in this important ministry that serves our community and beyond, you are encouraged to join us for our monthly, “Brown Bag Lunch” meetings, which are held at First Presbyterian Church on the first Monday of each month, October through May. This casual get-together begins at 11:30am. Simply bring your sandwich and we will provide the beverage, desert, and fellowship! While we enjoy the time we share as friends, our Presbyterian Women also serve in many capacities, benefiting not only our church, but our local community, nation and world. We invite any woman, church member or not, to come and fellowship with us!
