UMW Circles

Circle Meetings
Once a month the members meet in small groups called “circles”. Each circle engages in two annual studies: a Spiritual Growth (Bible based) study, and a Global Concern (or mission) study.  Some circles also enjoy reading selected books; all enjoy special speakers, good food, and great fellowship.

Individual circles are made up of women with similar interests. Circle 1 is comprised mainly of moms of young children.  Circle 2 members tend to have older school children.  Some circles meet in members’ homes. Others meet at the church. Some meet for coffee, others for lunch. In fact, no matter your age and circumstances, there’s a circle sure to be just right for you!

UMW General Meetings
Several times a year, the entire membership comes together for a short meeting and a very special program. These meetings are NOT limited to UMW members – all women are invited to attend these entertaining and informative gatherings, and to stay for lunch afterwords. Each meeting is on a Monday and begins at 10:30 a.m. in the John Wesley room.
