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 six Women’s Circles. Over 100 women are involved with a circle here at Westminster. We meet monthly for Bible study, fellowship, and mission outreach. 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.

Our 2018-2019 Bible study will be “God’s Promise: I Am With You.” From Genesis to the Gospels, God promises to be with us no matter where we are or what we are going through. Come explore how God spoke to those in Biblical times and speaks to us even today, assuring us that God will never leave us.

Pillow Ministry
