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.
