Martha Circle Close Up

 

Martha Circle

The Martha circle was started around 1993. One of the long-term members was Joyce Turner. We missed her when she moved and started a circle at Grandview Terrace. The Martha circle was struggling in the late 1990’s, but with the support of its members, new members joined.

As of the present time, it is a thriving group. We mourn the loss of two of our members, who passed away last year. They are Sandy Green and Robin McFarland. Jan Lansberry took over as leader of our circle after Robin passed away.

We presently have 25 members, averaging 20 at our meetings. We meet monthly in members’ homes the second Wednesday of the month, September through May, noon - 3 p.m.  We bring our own lunch and eat together. The co-hostess brings dessert to share with everyone. When dessert is finished, we have a meeting, followed by a Bible study.  All of the circles are studying Hebrews through the study book Cloud of Witnesses.

Our activities include sitting at the Presbyterian Women's table between services, which we did the month of November, hostessing the Mission luncheon January 23, 2018, and we help with the spring tea in March.

We have prayed together in the Chapel for ill members or members’ children.  We have provided meals for members in need. Martha circle is a wonderfully supportive group of ladies who care about each other and our church.

Anyone who would care to visit or join us is very welcome. Please call the hostess to let her know that you are coming.
