United Methodist Women

tea rooms 2The United Methodist Women’s Unit (UMW) at our church has three circles and an interest group: Rachel Circle, Rebekah Circle, Susanna Circle, and the Gertrude Sewing Group, that provide opportunities to promote spiritual growth and fellowship and develop awareness and encourage action and advocacy on behalf of women, children and youth, locally and globally.  Any female aged 12 and up is welcome to join a circle.

Circle of 8

The Circle of 8 mission is to help people become better acquainted with each other and to develop friendships within the church family. This is done through group fellowship in an informal, strictly social environment. Single and married adults are sorted into groups of eight, and each group plans its own monthly activities, taking turns hosting the get-togethers. Members’ names are shuffled and sorted into new groups every four months to promote wider circles of acquaintances and friends.
