Shallowford Presbyterian Women (SPW) are diverse in background, talents, and personalities. Hence, we serve God in many ways: as elders, as Sunday School teachers, through mission activities and trips, as choir members, through SPW’s Coordinating Team and Circles, and more. One of the best ways to get to know people at Shallowford is through women’s small groups – Circles. Sharing, studying the Bible and worshipping together in small groups provide an opportunity to build relationships of mutual concern and support for each other, our church, and the world around us.
Our six circles at Shallowford are listed below. We hope you will join one or more of your choice. We meet monthly from September to May. Or, you
may find you would like to form a new circle. It only takes a handful of interested women joining together to form a group of fellowship, support and service.
We are a group of ladies in our twenty through forty somethings that enjoy the community we find with each other. We meet year-round for devotions and Bible study, sometimes with dinner. We also gather for social activities a few times each year. Join us for fun and fellowship! We will have a kick-off meeting in August to set the schedule for the 2018-19 year. Contact one of us for dates and times. Contact Circle Leaders, Marlo McDonald or Elizabeth Harrell.
Sharing our Scriptures
We meet on the first Wednesday of each month at 9:30 am in a member’s home where we nurture our faith through prayer and Bible study. Here we seek support for daily living and guidance to prioritize our lives. New members are always welcome. Contact Circle Leader Vaughn Dunnigan.
We meet for fellowship and Bible study on the second Monday of each month at 7:00 pm in the Session Room, or in members’ homes. We are delighted to welcome visitors and new members. Contact Circle Leaders Hannah Weir or Barbara Reeves.
We meet on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 10:00 am for in-depth Bible study, discussion, and fellowship. You are welcome to pack a sandwich and join us. Some months we meet in members’ homes and others we meet in the Youth Center. Contact Circle Leaders Lois Finch or Betty Marie Stewart.
Mothers and Others
This circle brings women of all ages and backgrounds together for Bible study, fellowship, and lunch every third Tuesday of the month at 10:00 am in the homes of members. Come and join us. Contact Circle Leaders Jan Ziegler or Cheryl Heenan.
This is our newest circle, in its second year and still finding its way. If you have never participated in a circle, perhaps this one is for you! Our focus is primarily on Bible study and fellowship. We also hope to explore some mission opportunities. You are invited to join us at any time every second Wednesday of the month at 6:30 pm at Shallowford Presbyterian Church.
