Presbytery of Western North Carolina

Presbytery Office Reopening!

Beginning June 1st, the Presbytery office will reopen to visitors! We do ask that you continue to observe the appropriate protocols when visiting (i.e., sanitize your hands, wear a mask, socially distance, etc.) and to please stay home if you are not feeling well. The safety, health and wellness of everyone is first and foremost in our minds, so we are taking this step cautiously and will re-evaluate this change per the CDC and state government officials' guidance if needed.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Presbyterian Women in the Presbytery of Western North Carolina

Welcome to Presbyterian Women in Western North Carolina!

For more than 200 years, Presbyterian women have played a vital role in the mission and ministry of the Presbyterian Church (USA). That continues today at the Church, Presbytery, Synod, and Churchwide levels through Presbyterian Women. Many Presbyterian Women in Western North Carolina are involved in circles, conduct Bible studies, are active in their communities, and contribute in ways large and small which impact the world. Presbyterian Women truly endeavor to live out the Presbyterian Women Purpose, which follows.

We invite your participation. If you have any questions, please contact the Interim Moderator of the Coordinating Team, Tina Joyner, or 828-279-2665.

Presbyterian Women Purpose

Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ, and 
Empowered by the Holy Sprit, we commit ourselves:
To nurture our faith through prayer and Bible study,
To support the mission of the church worldwide, 
To work for justice and peace, 
To build an inclusive, caring community of women 
That strengthens the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), 
And witnesses to the promise of God’s Kingdom.
