Naomi Makemie Presbyterian Church Onancock, Virginia
Our Mission Statement
“Do what is fair and just to your neighbor, be compassionate and
loyal in your love, and don’t take yourself too seriously—take God seriously.” Micah 6:8
Compassionate, Fair and Loyal
All women of our Naomi Makemie church are invited to join Presbyterian Women (PW) for study and fellowship.
We have monthly meetings with Bible study on the 1st Monday of each month (September to June) at 11:30 a.m. in the Makemie Room. Bible study is followed by a "bring your own" lunch with dessert and beverage provided. In November and May, we recognize our Presbyterian women world wide in celebrating the Thank Offering and Birthday Offering.
Our Bible study follows a yearly suggested study, or books by various authors. This year we are studying "Growing Older and Wiser"
Our women participate in all activities of the church as they are able. This includes, for example, serving on Session, ushering and reading scripture for worship service, hosting coffee hour, knitting prayer shawls, and outreach visitation. We have also hosted a Presbytery wide Presbyterian Women's meeting called, "Women between the Waters."
Our women also support community activities. As an example, we support the Coalition Agaainst Domestic Violence by preparing first night kits. We have also supported local school teachers.
