About Us

If you are a woman attending our church or zooming into church programs, you are invited to consider our Circle of PW activities. We have changed our names to Women of the Bible. 

Names: Circle 1 is now called The Ruth Circle. 3rd Tuesday monthly @ 9:30 am, Hospitality Room. Our emphasis is fellowship while making items for those in need and support of missions. 
Ruth is a model of loving kindness. She acts in ways that promote the well-being of others.  She was committed to relationships and her family.  Ruth was diligent in her work as well as polite, respectful, and appreciative.  She had integrity and wasn't afraid of working hard.  From Ruth we learn that following your heart with integrity can increase your influence with others.

Circle 3 is now called The Esther Circle.  3rd Tuesday monthly @ 9:30 am, Bean Parlor. 
Esther is initially portrayed in the book named for her as beautiful and obedient, though relatively passive. Throughout the story, she evolves into a character who bravely takes a decisive role in her own future and that of her people.
A remarkably clever young woman Esther, as queen, was willing to sacrifice her life to save her people, the Jews, from genocide and secure the rights of the Jews  to defend themselves.

Circle 4 is now called The Elizabeth Circle.  2nd Monday @ 7:30 pm, your living room on Zoom. 
We chose "Elizabeth" for our circle's name because Elizabeth was chosen by God for a significant role in the story of salvation of humankind, as was Mary, the mother of Jesus.  When Mary came to Elizabeth, Elizabeth "recognized the presence of God in her midst and became the first gospel bearer recorded in the New Testament..."  (Olive Mahibir, "Sacred Encounters", p.16).  We, too, have been chosen by God and we desire to recognize the power of God acting through our lives.  We are grateful for our circle friends who help us recognize God acting through us, even when we do not.

*two above circles are actively involved in Horizon Bible Study (Presbyterian Magazine) and independent missions as Women’s Prison Ministry, Pinwheel Ministry, Equal Exchange, Kiva.
