We begin with a light breakfast and fellowship followed by prayer and study focused on a topic of interest to the group. The Sister Jose Women’s Center is our current service project in addition to the Prayer Shawl Ministry which was started by members of our circle.
ALL WOMEN ARE WELCOME TO PARTICIPATE. There is a spot waiting for YOU in our circle of friends.
Mary Martha (M&M) Circle meets from time to time for projects of all kinds with lots ofcomradery. Post-Covid, we are currently re-imagining itself.
In the past the circle has used our skills for collecting items needed by community services, for preparing and serving meals for organizations, and for creating special Caring Cross fused glass gifts. We sponsored with Tanque Verde School District a tutoring program for children of Amity and Dragonfly social services.
Our smiles are bountiful and our faith infectious. Oh, and M&Ms are always served!!
This circle is located at the Vail campus. Each Sunday we help setup for the church service in the Peak at Mica Mountain HS as well as run the Christ Café. Esther Circle assists at Western Sunday by staffing various information booths. In Spring 2023, Esther Circle will partner with Desert Skies’ Creation Care Committee and Vail Rotary Club to support the Mica Mountain High School Biology Department’s outdoor classroom by funding and setting up a greenhouse for science students. In addition, we will offer an Appreciation Luncheon for Vail School District Office employees, in partnership with the Vail Ministerial Association. We would love to have you join us.
