UMW Circles

Circles are the basic unit of United Methodist Women. There are 6 circles. Four of the circles meet monthly at various times and places for fellowship and business.  Quarter Nite Lites meets once every 3 months.  We also have a virtual circle on Facebook if you are unable to make any of the other meetings.  Find the circle that fits your schedule and needs. For more information on the individual circles, please feel free to contact any of the UMW members.
