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.
