Presbyterian Women (PW) Circles
PW Women’s Circles offer ladies in the church an opportunity to spend time together each month, supporting each other in happy and sad times, learning from each other and growing in faith while studying Christian curriculum and supporting international and local mission efforts. APC’s four PW Circles meet monthly, September through May. Feel free to visit them all to decide which works best for you. Childcare is an option for each Circle—please discuss the need with a Circle leader, listed below. For information on PW’s new scholarship for APC youth, please visit our Youth page.
