Women’s Guild presently supports five circles or smaller groups, which provide additional opportunities for fellowship, fun and service. All members of the church and community are invited to visit or join these circles at any time. Contact the church for additional information at 330-562-8266.
Circle A meets at the carriage house of Mad Jack’s at noon on the third Tuesday of each month (September – May) for lunch and fellowship. Members adopt a family for Christmas each year.
Circle B meets at the Aurora Inn for lunch at 11:30 AM, followed by bridge, on the second and fourth Mondays of each month (January – December).
Circle D meets at Club Walden at noon for lunch, followed by rousing games of Bridge or Skip-Bo on the first Wednesday of each month (except January) September – May.
Circle 3-H “Helping Hands Bring Hope” is a “hands-on” circle which meets on the first Friday of each month (September-May, excluding January), at 10:00 AM in Fellowship Hall, followed by an optional lunch at an area restaurant. Annual dues are $20. Members of this circle provide backpacks and school supplies for needy children in our area. They fill Christmas mugs with candy, and wrap gifts of warm socks, hats and gloves for the homeless living in local shelters. They make boxes of home-made Valentine’s Day chocolates in support of the Workcampers. Two times a year, they visit various non-profit facilities in the area to discover their needs. Their hands are always busy and their hearts are always warm!
Circle PSM – Prayer Shawl Ministry (formerly 3-H PM circa 2003) meets from 6 to 8 pm on the second Thursday of each month (September-May) in the church Library. They do a devotional study and (optional) handiwork, which includes knitting and crocheting baby afghans, prayer shawls and prayer squares for the needy. This circle also adopts a VOA family for Christmas.
All of these circles are looking for new members. You are welcome to join them!
