Women Ages 20 and Older
"No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us."
I John 4:12
The women of Graham Memorial Presbyterian Church look for opportunities to make and strengthen friendships among themselves in the groups described on this page. All our women's groups welcome guests to safe and trustworthy environments in which everyone can share experiences, knowledge . . . and acceptance.
Evening Circle. A sewing group? Nah. A quilting group? No way. A weight-loss support group? Not on your life! Evening Circle is a fellowship of Christian women who gather to support one another in love and kindness, and to praise, worship, honor, and learn more about God and the precious gift of his son Jesus Christ.
The group meets the last Monday of each month September through June, at members residences. The designated hostess for the month brings salad greens and salad dressings. All the other members bring a beverage of choice and something to add to the community salad. The group dines for the first half hour then engages in an hour of conversation prompted by the previous month’s reading. At the end of the evening, members head for their respective homes and family responsibilities feeling renewed, refreshed, and rejoicing that they had a special fellowship together. Doesn’t Evening Circle sound like your kind of group?
The Evening Circle is studying a new inspirational book entitled Fervent by Priscilla Shirer during the 2016–17 season.
Fervent - You have an enemy who is dead set on destroying all you hold dear and and keeping you from experiencing abundant life in Christ. What’s more, his approach to disrupting your life and discrediting your faith isn’t general or generic, not a one-size-fits-all. It’s specific and targeted right at you.
That's where Fervent comes in. Inside you'll find how prayer is your weapon for fighting back against the enemy and letting him know you won't back down. With every new strategy you build, you’re turning the fiercest battles of life into precise strikes against him and his handiwork, each one infused with the power of God’s Spirit. This is a hands-on, don't give up guide to purposeful praying.
