Empowering Women, Inspiring People

Women's Ministry

Presbyterian Women (PW) is a caring organization of women that provides ways to help the church and the surrounding community. PW of the First Church of Smyrna is not a select group of women….it is for all women of the church. Presbyterian Women are guided by a Purpose that includes ministry, resources, and relationships. During the year, the PW hosts events where the proceeds are distributed to those in need. Some of the events include a chili supper and cake auction, spaghetti supper and silent auction, Christmas breakfast and craft sale, etc. All these events provide a way to get to know the members of the church by fellowship and working together. Being involved in PW is rewarding, fulfilling, and most of all fun. Your life will be enriched by Presbyterian Women, and Presbyterian Women will be richer for having you!
