Administrative History:

The Women of the Church of the Presbyterian Church in the United States (PCUS) was a group within the church, led by women, which performed its work at the level of the General Assembly, the Synod, the Presbytery, the District, and the local congregation. At each level a leadership was elected and reported periodically up to the next level of the organization.

The Women of the Church (PCUS) in the Synod of Texas was established as the Texas Synodical Union on October 21, 1904 with Mrs. J. C. Terrell serving as the first Chairman. The group was known by several different names throughout its history, including: the Synodical Auxiliary of the Synod of Texas, the Woman’s Auxiliary of the Synod of Texas, the Woman’s Synodical of Texas, the Woman’s Synodical Auxiliary of Texas, the Women of the Church of the Synod of Texas, the Texas Synod Women’s Council, and the Texas Synodical Association. At the congregational level, the women’s groups were often known as the Women’s Auxiliary or the Women of the Church. The headquarters office, connecting the Women of the Church organization to the General Assembly, was known as the Board of Women’s Work.

The congregational women’s groups would meet monthly, breaking into “circles” if the group was large enough. The work of circles would vary by congregation, but would often include service to the church, the development of the personal spiritual life of members, group bible study lessons, the collection of money for congregational and charitable needs, making and sending “White Cross” supplies to World Missions medical centers, and general fellowship. Leadership of the congregational groups would attend annual meetings at the Presbyterial, Synodical, and General Assembly level.

A major fund-raising event for all the Women of the Church groups was the Annual Birthday Meeting, an observation of the “birthday” of the Women of the Church which was observed with a special program and offering. These funds were forwarded up to the Board of Women’s Work and often used to support Home or Foreign Mission work.

The Texas Synodical Association was dissolved on January 1, 1973 and incorporated into the regional Synodical of Red River. In 1988, after the reunion of the PCUS and UPCUSA churches, the women’s groups of both organizations were merged into the Presbyterian Women of the PC(USA). A history of women’s groups in the Presbyterian Church can be found on their website:


Scope and Content Note

The Women of the Church Collection is an artificial collection that brings together the minutes, reports, histories, annual meeting programs, scrapbooks, printed material, and administrative files of the women’s groups of the Presbyterian Church in the United States (PCUS), primarily in Texas. Materials are organized alphabetically at the Synodical, Presbyterial, and congregational level. A small amount of material on Synods in Louisiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma, as well as a collection of publications from the Board of Women’s Work at the General Assembly is also included at the end of the inventory.

The bulk of the material consists of annual Synodical, Presbyterial and Congregational histories prepared by the historians at each level of the organization, forwarded up to the next level, and compiled annually as part of the History of Churches and Woman’s Work in the Presbyterian Church in the United States, a project which began in 1930. The historians also prepared overarching histories of their churches and groups to accompany the annual reports. These histories often include photographs, programs, and other scrapbook material. Please note that the dates listed for histories are the date of creation, not necessarily the historical dates covered in the narrative.

Material documenting annual meetings at the Synod and Presbytery level includes published minutes, reports, and directories; annual meeting programs; administrative files; and scrapbooks.

Because Presbyteries merged and dissolved over time, records pertaining to an individual congregation may be found under more than one Presbytery. For a detailed listing of material related to individual congregations, see the Index to Congregational History Materials, available from the archivist.
