Deborah Circle

The Deborah Circle meets the second Wednesday of each month at

9:00 am in the West wing of the Parish Hall.
A lesson is given by a different member of the group each month and
then the refreshments are served.

Hannah Circle

The third Monday of each month at Perkins at 6:00 pm is the Hannah

Circle meeting.
The ladies take turns planning a devotional every month, eat supper
together and discuss the topic. A designated person from the circle
decides the topic for devotion, which may include Christian books,
scripture, etc. and she leads the discussion.
Everyone is invited to join in the fellowship. Contact Kaylee Johnson
or Church Office for more information.
