Presbyterian Women Events

Presbyterian Women understands that scripture asks us to be the hands and feet of Christ in the world. As such, Presbyterian Women provides information about justice and peace and ministry to inform mission and community-building work. It may be easier to tell you what Presbyterian Women doesn’t do! Presbyterian Women “do” food pantries, arts & crafts to support the community, provide meals, Bible studies, tutoring, relationship building and so much more. All of Presbyterian Women’s activities center on the PW Purpose.

Sew & Sews

Recurring Event

2nd and 4th Friday of each month from 1- 3 PM

Have you ever wanted to learn how to knit or crochet, or perhaps brush up on your skills? Is there a favorite technique you would like to share? Have you put your embroidery, cross stitch, crewel work or hooked rug aside for too long? Is there a scrap book that still needs your attention? Do you enjoy stamping, or making cards?  Are you interested in learning how to make a fleece lap robe, or a throw blanket? What about that skirt that sorely needs hemming, or that shirt whose buttons won’t replace themselves?

Since we are all in the same boat, why not row together?  So, dig out your sewing kit, knitting basket, craft box, or whatever you want to work on, and come join us!  If you are just in the mode for some social time, that’s fine too. 

Bunco Night

Recurring Event

Third Friday of each month from 7 – 9 PM

A few friends, snacks, dice and prizes means it’s Bunco night. Bunco is a dice game that only requires luck to win. There is no strategy, no talent is needed, and it moves fast.  It also involves a lot of laughter and getting to know new people.  If you’ve never played BUNCO, not to worry!  It’s super easy to learn and the other players help you to stay on track, as you move from table to table in this fast paced and popular party game.  JOIN US SOON – We meet for Bunco on the third Friday of every month at 7PM in the Fellowship Hall.

Fellowship Events

Christ’s commandment to “Love one another” encourages each of us to participate in the joy of our community and celebrate all of our diversity and commonalities.  Our Fellowship Team hosts a number of events for the purpose of our congregation to come together to do just that.  From making Valentines to deliver to local Nursing Homes and sponsoring Christmas Caroling visits to shut-ins to hosting rousing get togethers of Team Trivia competitions and adventures in “far-away” places like field trips to hunt magical orbs in Jekyll Island, our church family comes together for the purpose of fellowship.  Fellowship events usually take place randomly once or twice a month.  Visit our Calendar to get more information on all our events.  Below is a sample of what we offer. Be sure to check the SHELBY-NEXT CALENDAR for a monthly view of what the Fellowship Team has planned for us or visit the EVENTS page to see a list of all our upcoming events in date order.
