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.
