Description:  Lydia Circle is a group of women who meet to celebrate their desire to serve Christ by caring for others, social justice, prayers, fellowship, Bible study, health and fitness and enhancing our spirituality through a monthly program addressing these areas. It is open to all women with an occasional meeting which might interest men as well.  Newcomers are always welcome!

We meet in Rm. 141 on the first Thursday of each month at 9:30 am and concluding at 11:00 am. Those who spent the pandemic sharing books decided they would like to continue for now. Thus, we plan to meet in Rm. 141 from 11:15 until 1 pm. While the pandemic continues, this group will meet at the Hearth Room restaurant for the book discussion and lunch. Once the church fully opens we will bring a sack lunch if people want to continue sharing books.
