Presbyterian Women

Congratulation to Barbara Carlson for receiving the 2018 Presbyterian Women Honorary Life Member Award. Barbara was honored and given a certificate and pin at the PW gathering the evening of May 7. Her husband Jerry shared in the celebration. Below is the write-up on Barbara given by Serita Eisenbies:

Barbara Ellen Carlson with her husband Jerry, joined West Raleigh Presbyterian Church in the fall of 1969. Their children Daniel and Sarah, were raised here in this very same West Raleigh Church and cared for by many of you back in the1960’s through 1970’s   It was a fortunate time for West Raleigh. Barbara became an active member almost immediately by involving herself in Circle 6. In fact, perhaps this Circle would no longer be what it is today without her presence. Moving on, she became Corresponding Secretary on the PW Council. She wrote notes and sent cards to those in need of prayer and caring. The recipients appreciated knowing PW women cared about them and that women were available to assist them in any way. She did these things quietly, with love and concern for all.

pw-4c-logoPresbyterian Women provides a unique opportunity for women to worship and serve the church and the community through:

  • Circles – Each of the four Circles meets on the second Monday of the month, three in the evening and one at 2:00 PM. Three Circles follow the Horizons Bible Study, one discusses contemporary literature, and all provide fellowship and mission opportunities.
  • General Gatherings - Several general gatherings are held during the year to which all women of the congregation are invited. They include a light meal or refreshments and a program.
  • Flower Duty - The sanctuary flowers are given each week except during Lent by individuals or families in honor or memory of loved ones.  Presbyterian Women administer the sign up of donors.  If the donors do not wish to keep the flowers, circle members deliver them to shut-ins.
  • Hostess Duty - Circle members serve coffee and lemonade during a time of fellowship following each 11:00 AM Sunday service.
  • Care - Whenever there is a death of a member of the congregation, Presbyterian Women show their love and concern for the family by providing a meal or reception at the time of the funeral or memorial service.
  • Helen Wright Center Meals - Meals for this homeless shelter for women are provided by a Circle three times a year.
  • Together in Service - Mission opportunities are available through donations of food to the Wake Relief Food Pantry and Urban Ministries of Wake County; supplies to Loaves and Fishes; and donations to the Children’s Hope Alliance.
  • The Women's Retreat - The annual retreat provides a time of physical, emotional, and spiritual renewal, plus fellowship for women of all ages in the congregation.
