Now that we are returning to a somewhat more normal routine for the fall, PW would like to invite all women associated with FPC to consider joining us this year. PW generally sponsors a number of events that may interest the women in the church, as well as supporting three Circles that are open to all.
Past PW events have included gatherings for breakfast at a local restaurant, sponsoring potluck dinners and trips to museums or other local attractions. This summer a group of FPC women gathered for lunch at the Hive in a socially distance gathering of conversation and fellowship. At Christmas there is usually a Christmas carol sing with a soup lunch, although we all fixed our own soup and sandwiches last year as we caroled on Zoom.
PW is supported through pledges from its members, as well as other fund-raising events as situations allow. Proceeds from these activities are distributed each year to local and Presbyterian mission projects.
Please consider joining one of our Circles that have been meeting primarily on Zoom for the past year. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact one of the Circle leaders.
Circle Mary is a Bible study group that meets the 1st Thursday of the month at 1:00PM through the school year. The moderator is Kathy Hollinger (812-336-0756).
Koinonia is a service/support group that meets the 2nd Tuesday at 7:00 p.m.
(Apr-June, Sept-Nov.). The moderator is Gail Dunning (812-336-1967).
The Luncheon Fellowship Circle will meet the 2nd Tuesday of the month at noon at Bell
Trace, contingent upon the opening of Bell Trace to outside groups.
The moderator is Carole Allen (812-332-5093).
We hope to “see” you this fall, although the format of each of the meetings may vary between in-person gatherings and Zoom meetings, or a hybrid of the two. Stay tuned!
