Presbyterian WomenSparta Presbyterian Church is a member of the Salem Presbytery of North Carolina of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), located in the Synod of the Mid-Atlantic. We are called by God to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ in worship and service to the needy, and to promote peace and justice in the world. The church's Congregation and Session are governed in accordance with the Constitution of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), both its Book of Confessions and its Book of Order.

The local church is governed by the Session comprised of Elders who are charged with the responsibility to oversee the work and worship of the local Church. Each year two Elders rotate off the Session and two new Elders are elected by the congregation.

Sparta Presbyterian Women

The mission of Sparta Presbyterian Women is to build a caring community of women in our church through prayer, Bible study, service and fellowship.  We have two circles that meet monthly September through May and some additional gatherings each year that bring all Sparta women together for a meal and program for fun and inspiration.

Sparta Presbyterian Women support several organizations, i.e. “Heiffer International”, “Children’s Hope Alliance”, and “People Helping People” and participate in a variety of mission projects that include making kits for Presbyterian Disaster Assistance and “Days for Girls”, making Christmas stockings for a children’s residential program, contributing gifts for local nursing homes and hosting an ecumenical prayer shawl ministry.

Monthly meetings:
Morning Circle meets the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 10:30 am (lunch at a local café following the meeting)
Presbyterian Women Coordinating Team meets the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 9:30 am

Weekly meetings:
Prayer ShawlsEcumenical Prayer Shawl Ministry meets each Monday at 10:00 am

**all meetings are held at the church unless otherwise noted

The various times offer Sparta women a variety of options.   All women of the church are considered to be part of Sparta Presbyterian Women.  Women are encouraged to join a circle and become actively involved in Presbyterian Women activities.
