Faith Circle meets March 5 for lunch at the golf course at 11:30 a.m. The Bible study will follow in the Mathias Room at Calvary at 1:00 p.m. Ruth Lange will lead the study.
Peace Circle meets March 12 at 9:30 a.m. in the Mathias Room. Vi Bergman is hostess and Bev Tougas will lead the study.
Charity and Peace Circle women have been studying some obscure Bible women since September and this month is no exception. Taken from the book of Judges 11:30-40, the study focuses on the daughter of Jephthah. Japhthah was the son of a prostitute and a mighty warrior who made a vow with God. He promised that if he won in a battle with the Ammonites, he would offer as a burnt offering whoever came out of his house to meet him. The Ammonites were defeated and Jephthah was devastated to see his only child, a daughter, come out of his house. If you don’t remember the story, read it to get the details. Then you might enjoy visiting a Circle meeting to discuss this intriguing story.

Women's Java Jams Study. Women’s Java Jams begins March 10 the five-session Bible study One Thousand Gifts. Best-selling author Ann Voskamp ponders the question of finding joy in midst of everything from the typical grind of daily chores and deadlines to the calamity every person eventually faces. How can you live life with a heart overflowing with delight?' It's only in this expression of gratitude for the life we already have, that we discover the life we've always wanted, a life we can take, give thanks for, and use to serve others. Sessions include Attitude of Gratitude, Grace in the Moment, All is Grace, Trust: The Bridge to Joy and Empty to Fill.
