Presbyterian Women

There is a very active Presbyterian Women's Circle at Hamilton Union Presbyterian Church. We have about 25 members. Our activities involve mission projects, Bible study and fellowship.

We have a well-developed relationship with Presbyterian Women at the Presbytery, Synod and Churchwide levels. We participate in the Birthday and Thank Offerings plus use the Horizon's Bible studies.

Our Circle generally meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. There is a short business meeting and a Bible study lesson or an educational program. We bring a bag lunch. Coffee and dessert is provided. Besides our regular Circle meetings, we have many special events and a prayer email group. All women at Hamilton Union are encouraged to join in for whatever interests them. Presbyterian Women's activities are open to women in the community, regardless of their affiliation to Hamilton Union.

Supporting local, regional and international mission programs is an important focus of Presbyterian Women in Hamilton Union Presbyterian Church.
