Cook’s Presbyterian Women
Contact: Johnnie Quinn at firstname.lastname@example.org
Cook’s Presbyterian Women (CPW) are involved in many activities in the life of the church. We have three Circles: two Circles meet on the second Tuesday of each month at 10:00 am and 7:00 pm in the Fellowship Hall. We also have a Saturday Morning Circle who meet on the first Saturday of each month at 9:30am. Women’s Circle meetings are held from September until May each year to enrich faith, study and fellowship with God and each other.
We begin our year with a Women’s Retreat, and plan a full schedule including partnering with the Men of the Church (MOC) to support their fundraising dinners and Antique Car Show with delicious deserts. We also provide support at the annual Fall Festival and assist the MOC and Scout troop by manning stations for the families in our community attending this free event. We also support local non-profit organizations, provide gifts for our college students and home bound members, and plan several fun fellowship activities for our church family.
Check our church calendar and upcoming events schedule often, and become an active participant in our community of faith.
