Memorial’s Lutheran Women in Mission is comprised of two circles, Lydia Circle and Lois Circle, who meet once a month except during the summer months. Lois Circle meets on the second Wednesday of every month, at 9:00 AM and Lydia Circle meets on the fourth Tuesday at 7:00 PM. Meetings for both Circles are at the church and include a Bible Study or Devotion and a social time. Offerings for the general fund as well as mites (for missions) are received at each meeting.
