Naomi’s Circle began in September 2007at the Stratford Heights Church of God in Middletown, Ohio, with the understanding that God has a special concern for widows. James 1:27 says, “Pure and undefiled religion (worship) before God and the Father is this: to visit the orphans and widows in their trouble and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.” We offer this ministry as a warm fellowship for women who have lost their husbands and who are in need of understanding, comfort and times of sharing. We also offer help to those who occasionally need transportation or assistance around their home.
Widows Ministry Coordinator
Job 29: 13 says, “I caused the widow’s heart to sing for joy.” And that is the goal of this ministry!
Our mission is to plead the case of, provide assistance to, and promote the spiritual growth and ministry of widows. Based on Isaiah 1:17, Naomi’s Circle strives to fulfill the Biblical mandate to “plead for the widow” in a variety of ways, including:
•Distributing a monthly newsletter - if you would like to be added to our monthly newsletter mailing contact Barb Rogers.
•Maintaining a prayer list that is distributed to 100 widows currently on our mailing list to be “Prayer Warriors”, intercessors to the throne room of God on behalf of the needs of our church family, our community and our nation.
•We meet at local restaurants hosting three luncheons a year to honor our widows. We meet in our church fellowship hall and enjoy good food, fun and fellowship. During the luncheon, we have a devotion, sing a hymn, and hand out door prizes donated by area businesses.
