About the Presbyterian Women's Symbol

Forgiven and freed by grace through faith, the central figure stands in praise. Rooted in faith, the trio of women emerge.

The outline of the central figure forms a cross. We are Presbyterian women engrafted in Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit. It is no longer we who live, but Christ who lives in us.

The right figure holds a book to guide her reading, studying, praying, or meditating.

The left figure reaches out to care for others, as she shares, nurtures, and heals. The circle represents the church worldwide where women offer their gifts and talents in the midst of the global community.

The uplifted arms of the central figure reach out to embrace a just peace.

The relationship between the three figures depicts lives of wholeness rather than turmoil.

The three women have no distinct features. They represent all women. The shapes surrounding them express energy, strength and openness.

Our name, Presbyterian Women, ties us to our denomination. The Bible resembles the Bible depicted in the PC (USA) Seal.
