SOUTH PLAINS PRESBYTERIAN WOMEN MONTHLY MEETINGS
SEPTEMBER – MAY
We are meeting via Zoom on the Second Monday of each month at 10 a.m.
You are invited to join the Presbyterian Women (PW) of South Plains for Bible study, prayer and fellowship. Additionally, we support a number of mission projects. All women in the congregation are welcome to attend, whether on a regular basis or whenever you are available.
The Presbyterian Women at South Plains are studying the 2021-2022 Horizon’s Bible Study – What My Grandmothers Taught Me: Learning from the Women in Matthew’s Genealogy of Jesus – authored by Merryl Blair, Senior Lecturer in Old Testament at Stirling Theological College in Melbourne, Australia. Ms. Blair leads us in studying the depth the stories Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary and reminds us that Matthew names these women for a reason. What might the stories of these women have added to Jesus’ sense of identity?
Have you thought about Jesus’ grandmothers? What can these Grandmothers-of-the-Faith teach us? Their stories will lead us into the gospel, the good news about Jesus Christ. By exploring these stories together, we will have a richer idea of what the good news is.
In addition to Bible study, we support a number of mission projects, have a prayer and card ministry, and we value our fellowship time together, supporting each other on our faith journeys.
When we return to worship in the sanctuary, South Plains PW will again offer the ability to support mission abroad through the Equal Exchange/Fairly Traded Coffee Project., benefiting farmers on small coffee and cocoa plantations around the world. The coffee is served at South Plains’ fellowship time, too, so you know it’s good!
