Friend in Faith
When: First Monday each month
Where: Member’s Homes
Friends in Faith began in 1980 when a group of busy women at St. Paul’s responded to the need for a group devoted simply to Bible study without customary structural hierarchy and attendance constraints. Originally, the group used the name “Martha Circle”, which changed to Friends in Faith (FIF) as needs evolved. Charter members included Carolyn Bennetsen, Nettie Mae Freudenberg, Beverly Goldman, Debbie Higgins, Elva Keilers, Kay Marburger, and Betty Schmidt.
FIF seeks to practice its Christian commitment by observing, planning, and meeting special needs within the congregation, in our community, and globally. Every Christmas we make fruit baskets for all of our homebound members. Some of our other projects include Peru and our sister church Emanuel, the prayer garden at St. Paul’s in memory of our FIF member Diane Macaulay, Turtle Wing, St. Paul LYO, WELCA, Relay for Life, international students at Texas Lutheran University, Ukraine, and other interests in and outside of our community.
We meet on the first Monday of the month at 7:00 pm at a member’s home. We welcome anyone who wants to attend! If you need more information, feel free to contact Carolyn Bennetsen, Kathy Toensing, or the church office.
