When we first came to this church, we went to every single adult Sunday school class there is, and this church has such a wonderful variety of classes, something for everyone. My husband and I continue to learn and have our faith strengthened.

Presbyterian Women Circles

Several Presbyterian Women Circles meet monthly to study the Bible, pray, and participate in mission and service.  Each year, we delve into a different Bible study theme alongside Presbyterian women across the country, tying it in with the greater mission of the church. In Circles, spiritual concern for our own comes forth.

Our tradition of the Fellowship of the Least Coin, in which every Circle participates, bonds us spiritually with Christians worldwide. Circles take turns hosting Presbyterian Women general Gatherings
Projects include:

  • Presbyterian Home for Children

  • Western Carolina Rescue Mission

  • First Presbyterian Child Care Center

  • Meals on Wheels
