Local Unit Organization
Our local unit is organized into circles. Our circles meeting times and locations include:
Morning Circles 1, 2, and 3 2nd Tues at 10 AM
Agape’ Circle 3rd Wed at 11 AM
Lunch Meeting (members notified)
Cindajo Overton (CJO) Circle 2nd Tues 6:30 PM
Mary Frank Waters Circle Meets at various times each month (members notified)
Most circles rotate membership every two years. This allows members to get to know more ladies in a more personal manner, thereby stimulating new acquaintances and often creating lifelong friendships.
Local Unit General Meeting is at 12 Noon to 1:00 PM on the first Tuesday of the month.
On the first Tuesday of each month (except June and July), all UMW members, guests and visitors are invited to the general meeting luncheon (referred to as the “Touchpoint” luncheon) that is held in the Fellowship Hall. This is an opportunity to meet UMW members from other circles and learn more about UMW activities. The luncheon includes a brief business meeting and a seasonal program (see schedule).
Lunch is served at noon and costs $6.00. Reservations are needed and can be made by calling the church office by the preceding Monday or by marking the attendance pad in Sunday worship. Childcare reservations are required and should be made the preceding week through Parents’ Day Out.
