Presbyterian Women are a PCUSA group. When you become a member of PW, you will be joining women not only in your community, but you will be joining women throughout the United States and across the world.
OPPC PW active membership is based on participation in Circles, mission support, attending PW meetings,
and events. We currently have forty-one members participating in four PW Circles at Orchard Park.
All women, who are currently members of Orchard Park Presbyterian Church, may join and become members of Presbyterian Women.

Hugga Pillows group has disbanded but Amy Smith and a friend have continued to make pillows. In 2021 they made three hundred and thirty two pillows for Riverview hospital. They could use more volunteers to work on this project and
PW supports them with funding for their supplies.
Orchard Park Presbyterian Church PW Circles are incredibly involved in mission projects. We contribute to National PW Missions and Disaster Relief through the Birthday Offering and Least Coin Offering. Miriam Circle supported the OPPC college age students through monthly cards, and Valentine gift cards. Over $5,400 was given to Westminster Neighborhood Ministries, Camp Pyoca, Haiti Mobile clinic and birthing kits, Family Promise (IHN), Fountains of Hope, Cindi Brentlinger Tijuana Orphanage and Caravan. Orchard Park was also given $150 for food and gas gift cards for people in need.
