Presbyterian Women

The purpose of Presbyterian Women in the Presbytery of Blackhawk is to strengthen the program of Presbyterian Women in each congregation within the bounds of the presbytery, relating them to Presbyterian Women in the Synod of Lincoln Trails and to Presbyterian Women in the Presbyterian Church (USA), and together striving to fulfill the common purpose:
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 Presbyterian Church (USA)
 and witnesses to the promise of God's kingdom.

Women from across the Presbytery of Blackhawk continue to make handmade quilts, lap robes, prayer shawls, afghans and tied fleece blankets for the ministry that first began when tornadoes struck our presbytery in 2015. We encourage you to use these in your own congregations and communities as needs arise with opportunities to share God's love with something made with prayers and love. If you have fabric, thread, yarn, etc. to share with those looking for materials to work with, let us know!
When bringing completed blankets to a Presbytery Meeting or a Gathering of Presbyterian Women, please let us know which church has donated them.
