History of the circle

Fall 2022: An organizational meeting was held this fall with about 20 Calvary women coming together to learn about creating a giving circle.  All in attendance committed to being a part of the group, expressed excitement about being a part of such an endeavor and agreed to encourage other women in the church to join the Circle.  

February 13, 2023: The Calvary Women’s Giving Circle met at church for fellowship and a program by Cindy Kinzley, entitled “Collaborate and Create with God”. Everyone enjoyed time together, having coffee/ and treats and learning new ways to ask God to help each of them individually and as a group to determine where the needs are in the community and church, in order that the individual donations of $100 at each meeting are used wisely on behalf of others.

Donations from this meeting will used to help fund the Gratitude Wall, that will be installed in the church very soon. The next meeting will be in September, date to be determined. At that meeting the group will choose what need to address with their contributions that night. Child care will be provided. The Calvary Women’s Giving Circle has been established to give women who desire to pool their resources to meet an identified need the opportunity to do so, while enjoying time together and learning about the needs of the church and community. This group will meet each first and third quarter of the year.

May 10, 2024Calvary Women's Giving Circle will meet May 10 at 6 pm in the private room off the main dining room at Minerva's Restaurant. All current members are encouraged to attend.  Any church women interested in learning more about the group are invited to attend.

The Giving Circle was organized to provide an opportunity within the church for women to build relationships and pool their resources to have a bigger impact supporting non-profits within the community. Women in the group suggest potential recipient groups who are asked for presentations and then collectively the group decides who the recipients will be. The group meets twice a year currently.

The first project of the group was to support the completion of the Gratitude Forest Installation. All future funds will be awarded to community groups. Contact Karen Pearson at karenpea1234@outlook.com regarding any questions about the meeting or the group. Dinner will be the menu choice of the attendee, with separate checks provided.

What is the Calvary Women's Giving Circle?

Our Giving Circle brings together women of faith to causes we care about in our church and community.  Together, we have the opportunity to make a bigger impact by creating a pool of donations to support projects we collectively care about.

What is our goal?

Our goal is to bring women of the church together to practice joyful generosity, build relationships with each other and support important projects identified by the group.

what do i need to do to participate in the Giving Circle?

The Circle will plan to meet twice a year and at each meeting a $100 donation from each woman attending will provide a pool of funds that the group will decide how to use.  There is no membership, rather you are a part of the Circle whenever you attend a gathering of the Circle.  Organizers hope it will become a group that each woman looks forward to participating in on a regular basis, in order to share resources to make a difference and enhance relationships with other women in the church.
