United Methodist Women (UMW) at Asbury

United Methodist Women is the largest denominational faith organization for women with approximately 800,000 members whose mission is fostering spiritual growth, developing leaders and advocating for justice. We invite you to join us at one of the many circles we have here at Asbury.

Morning Glories Circle holds monthly meetings with programs taken from “Living the Heart of God.” The programs in this book will equip you to live the heart of God in the world so that you will be prepared to see the ways in which you can help build up the body of Christ.

They meet the second Monday of the month at 9:30 a.m. in the Fireside Room.

Moms’ Bible Study Circle meets each week and is currently using “The Wired Word,” a question and answer format based on a current event from the week. It is an exploration of our world and how we interpret our own Christian values. Moms of all ages are invited to join us. Childcare is available upon request.

They meet Wednesdays from 9:30-11:00 a.m. in the Fireside Room and is led by Mitchie McCammon.

Go ‘n Piece Quilting Circle makes quilts that are taken on church mission trips and given to people who have been affected by natural disasters and tragedies. Basic sewing knowledge is helpful. Feel free to bring your sewing machine and quilting notions. Fabric is available to make the quilts.

Mini Mission Project Sewing Circle meets once a month to work on projects to benefit women and children around the world. Our current projects include making school bags, pillowcase dresses, and reusable feminine hygiene products. Sewing is not a requirement to join us and help.

These two circles meet the fourth Thursday of the month from 9:00-noon in Room 11/12. Both circles are led by Louise Nelson and Lorraine Magee. Childcare is available upon request.

Evening Circle is our newest group and meets once a month in the evening in members homes. This circle is using “The Wired Word,” a question and answer format based on a current event from the week. It is an exploration of our world and how we interpret our own Christian values. Led by Burlyne Wilson and Mitchie McCammon.

They meet the first Thursday of the month from 6:45-8:00 p.m. in member homes restarting in September.

The UMW Reading Program encourages members to think critically about current issues through an annual selection of member-reviewed books. It offers an excellent opportunity to deepen your spirituality and to broaden your understanding of our mission work. Certificates are given for those who complete reading selections in different categories.
