Martha Circle Chairs
Martha Circle is a group of women who meet at 9:30 a.m. on the 3rd Thursday of each month, September through May. Our meetings are held in the homes of members or in the Saint Mark lounge, depending on the hostess/hostesses’ desire. All Saint Mark women are invited to join us for Bible study, prayer, fellowship, and service.
Our Bible studies are taken from the magazine for women of ELCA called Gather.
Martha’s Circle supports Helping Hands and Cluster events,. There is Bible study every month, September through June, a summer picnic in July, and a Christmas party in December. We participate in the Central Willamette Cluster Advent breakfast and Spring Spiration.
