Women's Circles

"But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ" (2 Peter 3:18)

Circles are monthly meetings designed for Bible study and fellowship. They serve as one element of our Women's Ministry, which exists to support the church's mission to KNOW and worship the Triune God, GROW in the covenant family of God as reformed disciples, and SHOW forth the love of Christ as servants & witnesses. We believe that each meeting is an opportunity to come alongside our most important practice as Christians, weekly gathering for worship on the Lord’s Day. It is our hope that all of the women in our congregation will be able to study together, even if not able to attend every meeting. We pray that this mutual study will overflow into our conversations and prayers with one another as we practice churchlife both in our church building and in our local community.
