Thank you to all who helped with the Rummage Sale! We had thousands come by- and everything was priced and sorted wonderfully. Despite the rain we raised about $7,500!

In addition to circles, there are other women’s groups that meet: Crafty Ladies – 1st and 3rd Tuesday 9:30am in class behind the gym. Knit Wits – every Wednesday at 2:00 pm in the Fellowship Hall- and welcomes any level of knitter. Garden Buddies – as needed to beautify the church grounds. Contact Lou Ann Summers email@example.com.
The women have annual gatherings at Christmas and in the Spring.
The women also have two big fund-raisers. A rummage sale in the Spring, and a bazaar in the fall. In the 2011 rummage sale we raised over $7,900 for PW mission causes and scholarships!
Betty Bobb Scholarship- in memory of Betty Abney Bobb who died 12/23/1992. Helps LMPC students who are attending Presbyterian USA colleges/universities or seminary. Applications are available in the church office starting in February and are due back in April.
Birthday Offering- Began in 1922 on the tenth birthday of the PWs. Women are urged to put a certain amount in according to their birthday to support national and global mission projects. Offering is taken in May.
Blessing Box offering- A SC PW Offering for students going to seminary at Columbia Seminary in GA or Presbyterian College in Clinton.
Fellowship of the Least Coin- to work among Christian women in the world- this is an inter-denominational effort.

Westminster Fellowship- our PW makes cookies and a meal for the PCUSA student association at USC.
Circle goals- to enlist every woman for Christ; to provide personal and group fellowship; to pray together; to study the Bible together; To invite each woman to serve God through use of her individual abilities; to bring persons into an awareness of support; to help those outside of the church to know Christ and bring them into the fellowship of the church.
