Women of the ELCA

Trinity has five Circles that meet at various times of the day during the second week of the month.  The Bible study that we follow is found in the monthly magazine, Gather.  Please call the church office if you are interested and we’ll help find a group for you.

What is a circle?

One day someone asked me “What is circle?”  Perhaps there are more women wondering the same thing, so here goes.  A Circle is a small group of women who get together once a month for the purpose of studying the Bible, fellowship, and refreshments.  We meet in members homes, at church, or a nursing home, or wherever place your group may choose.

Presently, we have five Circles:  three Circles meet at 9:30 a.m., either Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday; one Circle meets on Monday evenings at 7:00 p.m.; and one Circle meets on Thursday at 12:00 noon.  Circle week is usually the second week of the month.

The Bible study that we follow is found in the monthly magazine, Gather
Pastor John gives an overview of each lesson at the Bible study leaders meeting the week before Circles meet.  These studies are informal and usually last about 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the discussion.  The purpose of Bible study is to learn more about God’s word.  We study because we want to know more about Him and His Word, not because we think we know so much about the Bible.

If you are interested in joining a Circle or just want to know more about it, please call the church office at 681-1310 and we’ll find a group or a time that will be most convenient for your needs.  We’d love to have you join us.
