The heart of our church is our women. The goals of the Presbyterian Women are to work for justice and peace, and build a caring community of women. Our Presbyterian Women have two Circles which meet monthly for prayer and Bible study.
Riverside Circle meets the second Friday evening of each month at 7:00 pm in the Fellowship Hall for Bible study, prayer and fellowship. We are currently studying the book of Mark. Our plans are to study the New Testament in the order in which they appear in the Bible. We have two more lessons in Mark to be taught in January and February before we move to the book of Luke. We all take turns presenting the lesson. We have a team Bible trivia game each month which the members are really enjoying! At the end of the meeting, we have refreshments which are always very good.
Our Circle activities always include Christian service during the year. In 2015, we made up gift bags for the members of our church that were sick or unwell. We visit at the nursing homes and participate in the Christmas Caroling to the home bound members. We donate to the Sanford Area Hispanic Presbyterian Mission and support the Christians United Outreach Committee (CUOC).
If you do not have a Circle that you attend, please consider joining Riverside Circle. We would love to have you as one of our members!!
Other functions include:
- giving wedding and baby showers
- providing food for grieving families
- providing flowers for the sanctuary
- preparing the fellowship hall for special events
