Dear Presbyterian Women,
What a beautiful day that the Lord has made! Let us rejoice and be glad in it!
I want to thank the Presbyterian Historical Society for today's 25th Anniversary post on Facebook:
Did you know that in 1958, the 170th General Assembly approved the creation of a new national women’s organization known as United Presbyterian Women.
As approved by the GA, UPW had as its purpose: “As women sharing a common faith in our Lord and Savior, we unite through the Church: to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to demonstrate His love in all areas of life, to declare our oneness with fellow Christians everywhere, to grow in Christian faith and responsibility.”

I pray that as we continue to live our lives, work, and pray, as Presbyterian Women, that we find inspiration and new energy when thinking of the strong and faithful women that served before us. May we find community in studying our Horizons Bible Study, working on our mission projects together, sharing information, attending gatherings, and prayer. As we move into the future, please join me in prayer for guidance in reaching out to more women of all ages in a meaningful, unified mission, always growing in our Christian faith and responsibility.
May the peace of Christ be with you and God bless you all!
