UNITED METHODIST WOMEN CIRCLES

A UMW Circle offers a great setting for developing a supportive community, for spiritual growth, and for participating in missions both globally and locally.

When you join a UMW Circle, you:

  • make new friends and deepen relationships with old friends and acquaintances,
  • develop and grow spiritually, together and individually,
  • participate in activities and programs that nourish the spirit, the mind, and the social self,
  • meet with other like-minded women to read, study and discuss,
  • unite with other women to make the dollars you give have greater impact in helping women and children all over our city, our country, and our world,
  • join together with other women on projects that benefit women and children locally, nationally, and globally,
  • support one another in challenging times and rejoice together in times of celebration, and
  • mentor one another: we can learn much wisdom from women both younger and older.
