Presbyterian Women of Boulevard Presbyterian Church (PW/BPC) programs for women include a monthly general meeting or “gathering”, a monthly bible study, small groups called “circles”, and quilting and prayer shawl knitting groups. The monthly gatherings offer programs that feed both the mind and spirit, including mission-oriented community speakers, music programs, and much more. The women’s “circles” meet monthly at different times (some during the day, others at night) for fellowship, Bible study, and service projects. They also attend regional events held for all Presbyterian Women from area churches.
The monthly gatherings start with a delicious lunch (usually at a cost of $5.00) prepared by one of the circles or catered, followed by a program. Past programs and speakers have included musicians, local authors, “The Herbs of the Bible” presented by the Gahanna Herb Society, and an English Tea, just to name a few.
Presbyterian Women support national and worldwide mission projects through pledges and donations to the Thank Offering, Birthday Offering, and Least Coin Offering. The group supports local community missions such as Church Women United and Buckhorn of Ohio. They also support the programs of Boulevard Church, such as Vacation Bible School and Christmas Baskets.
Members of Presbyterian Women are committed to nurturing faith through prayer and Bible study; to support the mission of the Church worldwide; to work for justice and peace; and to build an inclusive, caring community of women that strengthens the Presbyterian Church (USA) and witnesses to the promise of God’s Kingdom.
All women, both members and guests, are welcome to become actively engaged in the meetings and projects of the group. Women who are members of Boulevard Presbyterian Church are automatically members of Presbyterian Women.
