United Methodist Women
We have over 100 women meeting monthly as six small groups which we call Circles. Each circle is named after a woman in the Bible. The purpose of United Methodist Women is to expand concepts of mission with participation in the global ministries of the church. We do this through quarterly meetings with various speakers and through two church-wide fundraisers held annually. We encourage you to visit any one of our groups! For more information, contact Lenore Swaim, President of UMW, or call the church at 598-7013.
