Lydia Circle

THE LYDIA CIRCLE invites all women of St. James and your friends to join us! We are a group of Christian women studying God's word and building strong friendships. We meet once a month on the second Tuesday of each month from 9:30am to 11:30am. We currently have 15 members and would love to have new members.

We welcome new members as we study the book of James. James is urging readers to put their faith into action.

The Lydia Circle have been active with Eagle Soar Youth Activity Center (ESYAC) for a long time by supplying cupcakes, ice cream and balloons for the kids’ birthdays once a month. These children of the motels rarely have a birthday party or a cake  so this is a treat for them. We want them to feel valued and to create a bond with other Christians, so members of the Lydia Circle volunteer during the year to do this act of kindness.

Recently, Lydia Circle voted to increase our ministry at ESYAC. We are now cooking a meal once a month for the afternoon tutoring session. The ESYAC children (about 25 of them) are transported after school to First Assembly Church in Redding. Then they are fed a complete meal before bible study and singing. Then they get tutored individually from 1 of the 25 volunteers. Sometimes this is the only meal they get after leaving school for the day.

If you are interested in joining the Lydia Circle, contact Sandy Weatherford at (530)  241-7141.
