United Methodist Women
All women are welcome to participate in the various events of the United Methodist Women (UMW). The focus of this group is on mission. In addition to special events and annual fundraisers for missions, the group meets monthly for fellowship, devotions, food, and special speakers. There are 2 groups--one that meets during the day at church (Ruth Circle), and one that meets in the evening at a member's home (Deborah Circle).
Men of the church meet for breakfast on the 2nd Saturday of each month at 7:30 a.m. All men are welcome to come for food, fellowship, and bible study.
