Purpose
 
We are forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves:
 
To nurture our faith through prayer and Bible study
To support the mission of the church worldwide
To work for justice and peace
To build an inclusive, caring community of women that strengthens the 
Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and witnesses to the promise of God’s kingdom
 
 
 
To nurture our faith through prayer and Bible study…
We deepen our faith through Bible study during each of the nine monthly meetings (September through May).  
This year the Presbyterian Women's Circle groups are using "She Did What She Could" by Elisa Morgan as our study guide.  This is a wonderful discussion book directed around the lives of women in the Bible as well as opportunities to serve in our everyday life.  Lessons are presented at each meeting by either a pastoral member of the church staff or volunteers from the membership.
 
 
To support the mission of the church worldwide...
Through a broad scope of missions and church programs, Presbyterian women of BTPC actively touch our church family and our community.

 
Programs and Areas we serve are:
 
Presbyterian Communities and Services North Dallas Shared Ministries
Presbyterian Children's Homes High School Senior gifts
Least Coin The Joy Offering
Birthday and Thank Offerings Visitation To Our Shut-Ins
Prayer Shawl Ministry Memorial and Special Gifts
 
 
To work for justice and peace…
Fellowship of the Least Coin which links prayer and "least coins" in a very significant way, as the least coin becomes the symbol of prayer for peace and reconciliation. Fellowship of the Least Coin, an ecumenical prayer movement, was begun in 1956 by Shanti Solomon of India who believed that women anywhere could have a sense of being part of a worldwide family of faith as they prayed for peace and reconciliation and set aside the least coin of their country as a symbol of that prayer. As coins are gathered from around the world, they become a sign of our oneness in the common quest for peace, justice and reconciliation. May 2, May Friendship Day, is the traditional day for collecting the Least Coin Offering.
 
 
To build an inclusive, caring community of women that strengthens the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and witnesses to the promise of God’s kingdom...
