Presbyterian Women in Limestone Church

             
  Mission Statement:
Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, 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, and
To build an inclusive, caring community of women that strengthens the PCUSA
and witnesses to the promise of God’s kingdom.
 
                       
  Every woman who is a member of Limestone is a Presbyterian Woman and is welcomed and encouraged to join in our activities and events as she can. Presbyterian Women are organized just as is our church—we are part of our Presbytery as Presbyterian Women in New Castle Presbytery (PW in NCP), then part of our Synod of the Mid-Atlantic, and finally as part of the Presbyterian Women (PCUSA). 

Limestone’s Women continue in an informal organizational structure. We do not have an active Co-ordinating Team, but that does not mean we are not actively supporting our church and Presbyterian Women locally, nationally and worldwide. Go to our Limestone newsletter for information on upcoming activities.

 
                       
  In Limestone:  
  We are a strong presence in the leadership of Limestone.   
      We offer a monthly Bible Study (2nd Tuesday of every month at 10 am, September thru June) using the Presbyterian Women’s Horizon Study.   
      We have a Craft Group that meets every other month on the 2nd Saturday at 9 am, and gathers for fellowship and “crafting”. Twice a year we host the “Quilts for Comfort” organization. Check the Chronicle for updates and place.   
      As part of Limestone’s Outreach, we have a very active Shawl Ministry. This group meets on the fourth Wednesday in Limestone’s Library from 1 to 2:30 pm. Yarn and directions for making the shawls and lap robes are provided. Again, this is an opportunity for fellowship and mission.  
      In October (1st weekend) we have a Children’s Clothing and Toy Consignment Sale that we strongly support with manpower. The consignors and customers both benefit from this sale. Monies made benefit local missions.  
    Throughout the year we participate in the Church’s activities by providing food, manpower, leadership, etc. etc. We are primary movers in the caregiving and support to our members and community.  
       
  In the New Castle Presbytery:  
  Limestone women currently serve on the Co-ordinating Team of the Presbyterian Women in New Castle Presbytery. Limestone member. As part of the Presbytery we support the Spring and Fall Gatherings (in Delaware), the Spring Retreat (in Maryland) and the Synod Summer Gatherings in Massanetta, VA.   
      The PW in NCP has a wonderful website that you are encouraged to go to for all the opportunities available to Presbyterian Women. It is: https://sites.google.com/site/pwinncp/  
       
  At the PCUSA level:  
  Through our mission work we continue to support Presbyterian Women through our contributions to the Birthday, Thank, and Least Coin Offerings as well as our yearly Worldwide Mission pledge.
