Women's Circles


Mary, Elizabeth, Sarah, Rachel, Hannah, Ruth, Lydia. Who are these women and what do they have in common? They are all important women in the Bible and they also happen to represent the names of each of our seven Women’s Circles. Over 100 women are involved with a circle here at Westminster. We meet monthly for Bible study, fellowship, and mission support. Each year, the Bible study program offers us insight into the meaning of scripture as well as opportunities for discussion of what it means in our daily lives. In addition, each circle takes time to share joys and concerns, casual fellowship conversation, and to reach out to those in need through cards, prayers and offerings.

Embracing Menopause Group

Saturdays, September 16, October 14, November 11 from 9-11 AM in Johnson Parlor

We will gather to create a safe and brave space discussing the struggles and joys (!) of perimenopause and menopause. Learning about herbal support strategies and sharing our many tools for common challenges during this stage of life, like sleep disturbances, weight gain, hot flushes, low sex drive, mood swings. Together we will be reframing the menopause narrative: finding empowerment to navigate this important stage of life while embracing and celebrating it as a time of opportunity and liberation.

We will have 90 minutes of structured time together – which will include short presentations and group discussions – followed by optional 30 minutes of herbal treats and chat. Kay Sidahmed will be facilitating the group sessions. She is a clinical herbalist and agricultural scientist and passionate about empowering people on their healing journeys by fostering community and connections with plants and planet. At the end of our first group session, participants will have the opportunity to voice preferences regarding the challenge topics for sessions 2 & 3.
