Presbyterian Women in March

Spring is coming and PW has had a full calendar of events so far this year. I hope that you have enjoyed our Gatherings and your Bible Studies have been fulfilling. We have more planned, so watch The SPIRE and your Bulletin for announcements!

Celebrate the Gifts of Women is held on Sunday, March 8th. We honor women who contribute their gifts to the church and to the community and lift up the bond between young and senior women in God’s household. I quote the November/December 2014 Horizon’s Magazine, "Celebrating the Bond Between Young and Senior Women."
The story of Ruth and Naomi is a favorite for many largely because of the bond between these two women. Ruth is one of the only two books in the Bible named after a woman and the only book named after a person who is not Jewish. In gratitude to God, we acknowledge the gifts of young and senior women, who are dear members of our family in the household of God.
Forgive me for quoting but I could not have said it so eloquently.

There will be no CT Meeting in March. The next CT meeting will be Wednesday, April 1st. Officers, Coordinators and Circle Leaders, please plan to attend.

There is no Gathering planned for March. However, we do have a fun Gathering planned for April; see below.

March 7th is the PW Presbytery of Grand Canyon SPRING GATHERING at Desert Palms Presbyterian Church in Sun City West, 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.  The theme is “One Can Make a Difference, Many Can Change the World.”   Let Diane know if you are attending so we can carpool together.

  • April 22nd - Salad Luncheon Fashion Show by Drapers and Damon. You won’t want to miss this event. Be sure to mark your calendar.
  •  April 25th  - Bible Study Overview of the 2015/2016 Bible Study at Faith Presbyterian Church, 8:30 am to 11:00 am.
We hosted the Church Women United Human Rights Celebration on January 30th, and I would like to thank all of you who helped with the meeting. We had a lovely Continental Breakfast with those wonderful scones made by Nancy Childress. Blessings come in many forms and you all are a blessing to me.

If you have any PW related announcements you would like to include in this space, please let me know. I also welcome suggestions.

Blessings to all,
Diane Nestlebush, Moderator
