Emmanuel Circle

Emmanuel Circle’s mission is the Shepherd’s Gate Women’s Shelter. Emmanuel Circle collects toiletries and other needed items to give to the women every month. This Circle is fondly known as the “Chicken Pot Pie” Circle because of its November fundraiser to support Shepherd’s Gate. At each meeting, the ladies share concerns which we lift up in prayer.  We attempt to have a speaker each month for the sharing of information pertinent to the welfare of women in our area (i.e. Julie Valentine Center, Shepherd’s Gate Renewal Center). There is always plenty of laughter and fun. Each year is kicked off with a cookout and the fellowship continues all year.
