Faith Lutheran Church Women


Faith Lutheran Church Women Circles:

A circle is a small group of women who gather for a purpose of Bible study, fellowship, service, support, personal and spiritual growth. Faith currently has Women's Circles which meet once each month. The circles use the Bible studies printed by the Women of the ELCA in the magazine Lutheran Women Today. For more information on our circles or for contact information, please call or email the church office.
