Thank you for continuing to support ministry for Jesus’ sake. 


  • There will be a Women’s Retreat Saturday, April 8, 2017.  The title is “Fill Your Cup”.  This year it was decided to present a  4 – 5 hour retreat that will be just as fulfilling as the all day retreat.  Stay tuned for more information on time and cost.  Mark your calendar for this exciting, God enriched time of your life.  Reservations will need to be turned in by March 31.  Any questions may be directed to Cathy Martin jcmartin@charter.net or 715-340-8426 and to Mary Gurlea mgurlea@gmail.com or 715-321-2102.
  • “NEW OFFERING” as part of Placemat Ministry!  Bringing out the artist in all of us, we are now offering a COLORING TIME!  Do you like to color?  Do you like coloring with markers, colored pencils, or crayons?  Well, come check this out!  Wednesdays 5:00-5:30 pm starting February 15, 2017, in room J in the Discovery Zone.  We will enjoy the intergenerational gathering as we color our placemats (themed with the lectionary), enjoy discussion, grow new friendships, pray together and celebrate our faith journeys!

 Mary Martha Circle warmly invites all women, from 18-99, of our United Methodist Church, to a special program at the Stevens Point location on February 7 at 7:00 pm. We invite you to hear a presentation from Mother Jane of the Church of the Intercession. She will be speaking about Thistle Farms, which supports women’s development, and the local Warming Center hosted at the Church of the Intercession.

Mary Martha Circle meets semi-monthly with a focus on community and world-wide organizations who support women and family issues. As women of the United Methodist Church we are all a part of Women in Action; this circle being one of those subgroups.

Come, enjoy the fellowship of women of our church, enjoy dessert together…and learn about local and worldwide initiatives to support opportunities for women and families.

As you can, we’d appreciate knowing attendance ahead of February 7, so we can plan dessert, room arrangement, etc. Come anyway…even if you’re last minute!!

The 11 volunteers who went to Midwest Mission Distribution Center on January 17-21 say “Thank You” for all the donations, prayers and time you have given the team.  We had an exciting time assembling over 1,000 Personal Dignity Kits, 82 school bags were sewn, 8 desks were prepared for sanding/varnishing, and 22 desks were sanded/varnished and wrapped to be shipped to the Latin American countries.  The fellowship with the team was wonderful.  God is Good!
