Presbyterian Women Latest News

Relationships, relationships, relationships.... Most of us would agree that our relationship with God and our relationships with others are of utmost importance. Presbyterian Women offer several opportunities in which women may nurture their faith through prayer and bible study, support the mission of the church world-wide, work for justice and peace and build an inclusive caring community of women.

                                                                                                      Speaker Mary Katharine Robinson, Pastor of Black Mountain Presbyterian Church in Black Mountain, North Carolina joins us with a focus on “I love to tell the story…”

Mary Katharine grew up in Florida and spent many happy summers in the mountains of North Carolina. She received her B.A. from Davidson College in 1993 and is a 1197 graduate of Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, Georgia. She served at First Presbyterian Church in Charlotte, NC and at Oakland Avenue Presbyterian Church, Rock Hill, South Carolina. She is now Pastor and head of staff at Black Mountain.

In her own words:
To tell my story is to tell the story of the relationships that define my life. My parents were a huge influence on my life and faith. At Davidson College and Columbia Seminary I learned how my life and vocation could be used to better serve God. While responding to God’s call to enter seminary I met my hus, Billy, a teaching elder with PC(USA). We have three children, Mary Scott (14), our son Munroe (13) and Sarah Wren (11). In my 19 years of ministry, I have had the privilege and honor to enter into people’s lives and walk side by side with them in their growing discipleship.

Come hear familiar Bible stories that help you relate to your own faith story. Spend time with old and new friends understanding how our journeys of faith change as we go through different stages of life. Leave with some practical applications of how to live out your faith in the next season of your life.
