Our Vision

How can you become a member?

Come and enjoy interesting, inspirational programs, fellowship, lunch and music. Joining the church does not automatically make you a member of United Methodist Women. Anyone may join through participation in Unit meetings, Circles, study, giving, praying, action or serviceYou are invited to visit and join.

The Unit meets monthly for fellowship, a program, and to conduct business. A local group is called a “Unit” because the United Methodist Church is a connectional church.  Each group is connected to the whole, which includes, district, conference, jurisdiction and national organizations.

Circles are small, intimate groups that meet monthly for fellowship and study. Every member of a Circle is also a member of the Unit.
