Women in Ministry

“Women in Ministry” are committed to nurturing faith through prayer, serious study of the Bible, helping needy individuals and families in our community, and supporting Christian causes like the United Christian Assistance Program (UCAP), the Fuller Center of Webster, the United Christian Homes, and the Gingerbread House.

Circle Meetings

The Susanella Circle meets to pray for those in need of God’s special embrace and study God’s Word. We are currently studying the "Kingdom Feast: Coming to the Lord's Table" from the video and workbook library of Dr. R. C. Sproul of Ligonier Ministries.

We meet the 2nd Monday of each month at noon in Hutton Hall. Bring a lunch and join us.

Dinah Maupin is our Reporter to the Session.

No meetings during the summer months.


Meals: “Women in Ministry” are responsible for preparing bereavement meals and coordinating meals for those who are sick or recovering from surgery. We plan and host all wedding and baby showers.

Prayer Chain: This is a powerful ministry of our women that allows us to connect with each other when a warrior prayer effort is needed.

General Meetings

We planned three General Meetings in 2015-16.

  • On October 24, 2015, we enjoyed a “Fall Luncheon” at the home of moderator, Mrs. Frances Irving. Our guest speaker was Charlotte Jones, representing United Christian Homes.  
  • On Dec. 12, 2015, we are planning our "Christmas Luncheon" at The Fitzgerald House, 304 McDonald Street, at 12:00 noon.  Officers will host the meal and donations will be collected for the United Christian Homes.
  • Our final meeting will take place on April 7, 2016 at 6 p.m. at the home of Monica Clark. This “Business Social” will have a guest speaker, yet to be determined. Our business meeting will include plans for graduate recognition. The meal will be a Salad Pot Luck.


“Women in Ministry” officers for 2015-16 are Frances Irving, moderator; Monica Clark, vice moderator; Libby Orenbaun, secretary; Sondra Earnhardt, treasurer; Marilyn Miller, historian; and Nan Edwards, Missions.
