The circle meets the third Monday at 6:30 PM in the Fireside Room. The members discuss various topics such as women in the Bible and spiritual disciplines and issues.
Rebecca Circle: Rebecca was known for her beauty. She drew water for Abraham’s servant so he considered it a sign that she should become Jacob’s wife.
