Moderator’s Moments

I’m honored to have the opportunity to serve as PW Moderator.  Thanks again to Sandy Weil for leading us with love and enthusiasm these past two years.  She will continue to be an important part of PW.  Participating in PW has given me an appreciation for the rich history of the organization.  PW supports the spiritual development and growth of each member and empowers them to participate in the life of the church at home and throughout the world. I look forward to a great year of Bible study, fellowship and mission.

This year our study will be Hebrews: A Cloud of Witnesses by Melissa Bane Sevier. We have the opportunity to hear her speak on August 12th at First Presbyterian Maitland.  Send in your registration by July 28th and be part of this event.  We will be taking the van or car-pooling, so it will also be an opportunity for good fellowship.

If you are not a circle member, I hope you will consider visiting one or more of our groups when we begin meeting in September.  Look for more information in the August First Press.
