At Lewinsville, Presbyterian Women provides opportunities for women to grow together in their faith in Jesus Christ through Bible study, prayer, mission, and fellowship. These opportunities are created for all women in the church, that they may be encouraged and nurtured in their daily life.
The following is the purpose of Presbyterian Women throughout the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.): Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ, 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 (U.S.A.) and witnesses to the promises of God’s kingdom.”
