Presbyterian Women at RRPC invites all women of the church, members and visitors, to participate in their programs!
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, and
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.
Current projects include:
Reid Elementary School,
Henrico Education Foundation
Care packages to an Army battalion in Iraq,
Hygiene kits for disaster relief,
Pillow case dresses for Africa,
Circles of women gather at church or in individual homes for fellowship, programs of interest, Bible study, and mission opportunities. Currently, there are five circles. Contact the Circle Coordinator or specific Circle Leaders for more information. Check the church bulletin for meeting times and locations.
Bible Study - This is a traditional mixture of Bible study, fellowship, and mission. The Bible Study Circle ordinarily meets the first Tuesday of the month.
Circle 5 - Programs are based on the interests of the group, combined with fellowship and mission. Circle 5 ordinarily meets the first Tuesday of the month, but this may vary according to the school calendar. Childcare at the church is available upon request to Circle leader.
Literary Circle - Programs are based on pieces of literature with a spiritual component, combined with fellowship and mission. This group usually meets the first Tuesday of the month.

Presbyterian Women Sunshine Visitors
Volunteers go out in teams of two to visit women at RRPC who are homebound for a variety of reasons. These are friends visiting friends. There are no obligations involved, and you do not have to be a member of a circle. Although our visitors will be going out each month, we won't be able to visit everyone every month. You will be called shortly before the team leaves the church to make certain that a visit is convenient for you!
