UMW Mary-Martha Circle

Charlene Stephenson is co-leader of the Mary-Martha Circle. The circle's goal is to combine the characteristics of love for Christ which was exhibited by Mary and with service to others which was exhibited by Martha.(Luke 10:38-42)

Charlene Stephenson has been active in United Methodist Women for twelve years. She seeks to follow Psalm 68:11,"The Lord gives the command; the women who proclaim the good tidings are a great host." She is proud to serve in an organization that serves women and children in need through local and global organizations. Her involvement in United Methodist Women has included service as circle leader, member of the Executive Board, and president. She prepares programs, serves as circle hostess, works for Holy Week services, and participates in fund raising activities. Charlene takes pride in having served as editor for two books completed by United Methodist Women, "Blessed Assurance," and "Christmas in the Heart." These stories were written by UMW members and friends in the community. Proceeds form sale of the books have been used to support local organizations.

The Mary-Martha Circle meets on the third Monday of most months at 10:00 am in the fellowship hall. Please join us for an interesting program, fellowship with Christian women, and opportunities to serve our Lord.
