Maria Martha Verein Ministry
Our group of 30 – 40 ladies (ranging in age from 72-92 years) meets every Tuesday from 9 am – 2 pm in the church basement. During the summer months we meet once a month. Our main objective is to help people in need all over the world. We have a fundraiser once a year and the money mostly goes to M.C.C. (Mennonite Central Committee) who then use it “where most needed”. We also support a hospital in Paraguay.
Our main activity is to quilt blankets, which then go to M.C.C. in Kitchener who distribute them again, “where most needed”. We make between 300 – 400 blankets per year.
During the lunch hour we have devotions with prayer and we also discuss any business that may occur.
Once a year we celebrate golden and diamond anniversaries in our group, and once a month we celebrate birthdays with a special dessert.

Home Mission Circle
This group of ladies with a current membership of 73 has a wide range of ages, from 30 into the 80’s. We are a service group, but our ladies feel the personal support we are to each other is our best strength. In the congregation, we are available for catering funeral meals, conferences and other events. For fund raising, we have two suppers annually where our profits go to world relief, missions or local charities. We also do catering for several outside groups each year. At the beginning of the new year, we quilt/tie blankets for M.C.C. and local needs. We serve in our local senior homes with programs, birthday parties, and baking for their bazaars and bake sales.
Our meetings are on the third Wednesday evening of the month, nine times a year. Meetings have a spiritual, service or social emphasis followed by a business portion.
All ladies in the congregation are welcome to join us.
