Mabel First Lutheran Church has an active congregational unit of Women of the ELCA. This community of women comes together for Bible study, personal support, ministry in the congregation and mission beyond the local congregation. The Mission Action Committee gives special focus to the ministry of the church. In 2017, over $6,000 was contributed to various ministries and service organizations.
Within the congregational unit are small groups called “circles” which further support the mission and purpose of the organization. Following a tradition that goes back generations, these circles are known by the names of important women in the Bible. The four circles in our congregation are Lydia, Phoebe, Rachel and Ruth. For decades, the circles have faithfully prepared and served meals after funeral services in the church.
