Shalom Circle meets the second Thursday of every month at 1:30 pm in the Shalom Room.
In 2021 the record 63 baby care kits were assembled and packed. They were shipped
with the quilts. For Christmas 2021 the Shalom Circle gave uniforms and school supplies for 2 girls.
Mary Circle is scheduled to meet the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month in the Shalom Room.
The Gather magazine provides our monthly Bible study. Our offering at each meeting is given
to the TLCW for local mission donations and we forward another portion of our monthly
offering to the Pioneer Club to assist the general fund at Sugar Creek Bible Camp where
many of us attend retreats. Summer and holiday months our meetings are subject to change
(announced via emails). Sometimes we meet at individual member homes for informal gatherings.
We always welcome new people to Mary Circle!
Mary Circle thanks Debbie Bassett for her years of being our contact person and keeping us going.
Joy Circle meets the second Thursday of each month for Bible study, fellowship and stewardship.
This past year, due to Covid we have met outside when the weather allowed, sometimes having
to cancel but recently meeting in the Shalom room again following Covid restrictions. Our offerings
have been disbursed as the following: $154 for Trinity Camperships; $87 to Back to School Program;
and $143 to the Family Christmas Drive. If you are interested in Women's Bible Study and
fellowship we would love to have you join us as we start a new study in our ELCA
women's magazine, Gather. Watch the tidings for the date and time and if you
would like, bring a friend! You can pick up a copy of the study from the church office.

This is a community where Christian mothers of all ages can come together to find support, encouragement, and wisdom from other mothers who are dedicated to keeping Jesus Christ the foundation of their home. This is a place where we can find mentors, build relationships, gain spiritual growth, and share ways to guide our children with love and gentleness, toward a rich life where they continually follow Jesus. We can remind each other to anchor our days in the Word of God, and seek His ways in the raising up of our children.
