United Methodist Women (UMW)

The organized unit of United Methodist Women shall be a community of women whose PURPOSE is to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative, supportive fellowship; and to expand concepts of missions through participation in the global ministries of the church. 

First United Methodist Church has four circles, which are small groups of Christian women who meet once a month (September-May). We also have Supportive Members, women who do not belong to a circle, but support UMW with their many talents and gifts.
A & M Circle meets the third Friday at 9:30 a.m. It does not meet in January or February.
Harmony Circle meets the second Thursday at 9:30 a.m.
Unity Circle meets the second Thursday at 7:00 p.m.
Felicity Circle meets the second Tuesday at 7:15 p.m.
