Women in the Saxe Gotha Women's Ministry showing off their ribbons

Presbyterian Women

Saxe Gotha is blessed to have many women within the congregation who are committed to the word of Christ in a variety of ways. They gather to learn about God's word and serve others in His name. These women participate in a number of activities such as: luncheons, circles, Bible study groups, aerobics and congregational care small groups.

‍Presbyterian Women's Spring Luncheons:

Our annual spring luncheon was held on Sunday, April 7. Our featured guest speaker was Mary King from WIS-TV. She spoke on: "Who You Say I Am!" Here's a Synopsis of her Inspirational Talk: Scroll through social media, turn on the TV or look in any magazine and it’s tempting to find our worth and value in how we measure up to others. Our world can lead us down a slippery slope of comparison, isolation and defeat. If you’ve ever found yourself in this place, you are not alone, and WIS News 10’s Mary King can relate. Let’s rejoice together that our identity doesn’t have to be found in things that often leave us hopeless, but instead in the One who is HOPE!

‍Congregational Care Ministries

Prayer Shawl Ministry

Compassion and the love of knitting/crocheting have been combined into a prayer ministry that reaches out to individuals in need of comfort or solace. Many blessings are prayed into every shawl that's created. The shawl maker begins with prayers for the unknown recipient and the intentions are continued throughout the creation of the shawl. Upon completion, a final blessing is offered before the shawl is sent on its way. If you like to knit, or would like to learn to knit, then this ministry needs you. The group meets on the 1st & 3rd Thursdays of the month (during the school year) in the Main Building, Room 154 from 10-11:30 am. This ministry is for beginners and advanced knitters, as instruction is provided for those who are new to this craft and ministry. Newcomers only need to bring needles. To get involved in this ministry, please contact Polly Askew at aep4h128@windstream.net (or contact by phone at 803.359.7263).

WinGS: Widows in Group Share

This extra wonderful group of ladies get together monthly to provide support and share with each other in their unique journey of being a widow. Gathering to share a meal at a local restaurant every second Saturday of the month, they provide each other with vital fellowship, friendship and support, and have a lot of fun along the way! All widows are welcome no matter the age! Co-Chairs are Jan Harrison and Carol Harden. For more information, please contact Jan Harrison at aep4h128@windstream.net (or contact by phone at 803.520.6640).
