The Ladies Circle is an organization open to all women of the church. It has served in a supporting role for over 100 years. The Ladies Circle hosts a monthly gathering with dessert and tea and a short business meeting followed by the monthly speaker, activity, or outing as determined by the program committee. The Ladies Circle also hosts celebrations, provides outreach to our ill and homebound parishioners and others in need or encouragement, raises funds to supplement the church budget, raises funds for interior repairs and refurbishing projects, helps with housekeeping, and provides flowers for services and coordinates receptions and collations. Above all, the Ladies Circle has kept, and will continue to keep, a sense of the history of our church, valuing it and passing it on to those who choose to be a part of our organization.
