Women's Ministry

If you are a woman at Second, you are a member of Presbyterian Women.

This vibrant group hosts a number of weekly Bible studies and coordinates ongoing community service projects.

Presbyterian Women sponsor several gatherings each year featuring an inspirational speaker and an opportunity for wonderful fellowship.

The PW Fall and Summer Sales raise more than $75,000 each year. This money goes to local, national and international mission programs.

Malick Scholarship

Malick Scholarship

At the 138th Praise Luncheon in 2008, Presbyterian Women in Second Presbyterian Church established an endowment fund to honor retiring Associate Pastor and PW liaison, the Rev. Dr. Joan B. Malick. This fund provides a scholarship to female seminary students either under the care and concern of Second or a female seminary student enrolled at McCormick Theological Seminary, Dr. Malick’s alma mater. 

This scholarship was first presented at the 2009 Praise Luncheon. The scholarship committee, appointed by the PW Moderator, selects the recipients and is approved by the Presbyterian Women Coordinating Team.
