Presbyterian Women in June

We miss our winter visitors! We hope you’ll keep in touch; here are some good reasons:

“Who Is Jesus?”

To receive copies of the Horizons Bible Study book for 2016-2017, PW members are asked to contact Sherry Gearhart (602) 509-2684, and send a check payable to First Presbyterian Church of Sun City AZ to the church office, Attention: Norma. This year’s Bible study, Who is Jesus?, will be the focus for the PW Synod of the Southwest Fall Gathering, to be held at the Franciscan Renewal Center in Scottsdale, October 28-30. If you’ve never experienced being at the Renewal Center, you should consider attending for one or two days, or all three (overnight accommodations available). Deadline to register is July 25th. (See your circle leader or one of the moderators for a registration form, which has complete details of the planned activities.)

Back-to-School Supplies

We will want to be thinking about donating supplies again this year, starting in July. Billie Lewis contacted the Dysart School District last week, inquiring about their needs. The high school and elementary school are both Title 1 schools. Officials say they would be “thrilled to receive anything.” We can do all grades—everything from tissues to pencils, pens, erasers, notebooks, scissors, backpacks, etc. Monetary donations are also welcome. So watch for specific instructions in the July issue of The SPIRE regarding this worthwhile effort.

Circle Membership

PW members: How many of us know a congregation member or frequent church attender who has never visited one of our circles? Why not invite her to attend one of our Bible study groups when we start up in September:
  • Rachel Circle meets in Annex 3 on the second Tuesday of each month. The new meeting time will be 1:30 pm. 
  • Lydia Circle meets in Annex 2 on the second Wednesdays at 9:00 am.
