Service & Fellowship

“The heart of Christian ministry is Christ’s ministry of outreaching love.”

United Methodist Church

At Portage Faith Church, we delight in caring for and serving others through fellowship. As a result, the following Adult Groups meet on a regular basis to celebrate and nurture our positive relationships and to serve our community neighbors and friends.

Mary Martha Circle

Our Mary Martha Circle was established as a fellowship group for the women of Portage Faith Church. The fellowship of the group is based on support for each other and service to others. Members help with church dinners, present programs, host picnics, and participate in monthly mission projects, as well as enjoying a variety of other activities.
