Presbyterian Women

FPC Presbyterian WomenPresbyterian Women's Ministry

Presbyterian Women's Ministry is our organization for adult women of all ages. At the local level, the work of PWM makes a significant contribution to the life and ministry of the individual church.

Presbyterian Women's Ministry at FPC Starkville is a very active organization. We are strongly committed to the purpose of nourishing our faith through Bible study and to putting that faith into action through service. Our activities support the members and programs of our local congregation, as well as missions in our community and beyond.4,200 square feet to the main church building. Occupancy of the new facilities took place in early 2007.

How to Join

All women who are members of FPC Starkville automatically become members of PWM. As is the case throughout our denomination, much of PWM’s local work is done through the combined efforts of its smaller groups, called "circles." Each FPC woman is encouraged to join a monthly PW circle group. Those who are unable to belong to a circle are classified “associate members” and are invited to support and participate in any PWM activity they can.

Circles Meet

At FPC we currently have four regular circles and a sewing group for missions. Circles meet monthly throughout the year, usually during the second week of the month.
