First Presbyterian Church of Norwood
Seeking to Grow in Christ Together:
Welcoming, Loving, Serving in Christ’s Name
God created us to live in community. God called the people of Israel and then the church to live together as God’s people in community, not as isolated individuals. In addition to Sunday school and gathering as God’s people for worship, FPC seeks to form groups and plan activities that bring us together for mutual encouragement and support, for fun, and for service.
Groups that Connect
The mission of Presbyterian Women (PW) is “to serve the church, community and world in Jesus’ name.” Women of all ages meet monthly for study, service, and fellowship. Most months the women go out for lunch after their meeting.
In 2019, FPC Norwood’s PW was recognized by the Presbytery of Charlotte for its mission outreach and giving. Some of the mission organizations PW has supported or volunteered with include: Water=Life, which provides water filtration systems to communities in Haiti and beyond, Esther House, Heifer International, Crisis Assistance Stanly County, Bridge to Recovery, and Stanly Community Christian Ministries. PW has a card ministry, reaches out to home bound members and nursing home residents, and provides meals when there is a need. In addition PW has provided scholarships for youth to attend the Montreat Youth Conference. Come join this active group of women!
Great way to stay in touch with our college students with cards, cartoons and small gifts during the school year.
Having fun together is an important way that real community is formed and nurtured. We come together for the Best Pot Luck Lunches in the South four times a year. Special events are planned throughout the year such as Fall Festival, Worship on the water, movie nights, fishing excursions, and many more. Add your ideas to the mix for ways we can laugh, play, and enjoy some relaxing time together.
