Mary Lydia Circle
The Darnestown Presbyterian Women (DPW) form circles shaped around heartfelt needs that will achieve the purpose of Presbyterian Women.
A circle is:
where faith is nurtured and growth take place through worship, study, friendship and outreach
where women are challenged to stretch beyond their limits
where women move beyond the safe places of life and reach out to others
where Christian leadership is born, nurtured and sent forth into ministry.
The DPW Mary Lydia Circle is currently a group of about 15 women, and meets at 10 a.m. on the first Thursday of the month in the Church Parlor and occasionally in member's homes. Basic to circle life is the Horizons Bible study. Some circles may have a dual study of both the Bible study and a mission study. Other circles may study current issues, such as peace, hunger, racism or another topic from a Christian perspective. The members of the Circle decide on the study course they want to undertake. New participants are welcome at any time!
