Woman of the Year Award
An Honorary Life Membership in Presbyterian Women, Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), is conferred upon an individual in recognition of faithful service in some area of church work. Moderators, leaders, teachers, officers, pastors, and missionaries have been among the recipients of this honor. This year's Life Membership was given to Janette Regan!
The symbol of the Life Membership pin represents and portrays the qualities of persons deserving the honor and recognition of an Honorary Life Membership. The following are some meanings found in the symbol:
The caring, supportive hands represent women who seek to build an inclusive community of Presbyterian Women.
The leaf represents growth of our personal and corporate response to Jesus Christ as we nurture our faith.
The dove indicates our work for peace in our own lives and throughout the world, shown in the globe.
At the center of the design is the cross, by which our sin are forgiven and we are freed to live in Christ who is at the center of our lives.
The overall design is of a butterfly, a symbol of newness in Christ and the emergence of a new creation - Presbyterian Women.
