St. Andrew United Methodist Church

Open Minds. Open Hearts. Open Doors.

The United Methodist Women is comprised of women coming together to do mission work. We support the missions of our church and the community by our projects and fundraisers. In addition, participation in UMW is a good way to make friends, support our sisters in faith, and share God's provisions with others. We pray together, give together and grow spiritually together.
UMW is comprised of three groups:
     Esther Circle meets the 2nd Monday of each month in Keheley Fellowship Hall, 7 p.m
Ruth Circle meets the 4th Monday of each month in Keheley Fellowship Hall 12-2pm
Women's Morning Bible Study meets each Thursday morning in Keheley Center Fellowship Hall  9:30-11:30am
Contact  Nicole Kidwell,  about Esther; Edna Felmlee,  about Ruth, and Jan Compton,  about Women's Morning Bible Study 
for more information.  

Please Join Us for a Circle Meeting!
Esther Circle meets at 7pm on the second Monday evening of the month in the Keheley Center.Refreshments are served while we enjoy a social time with each other. Sometimes we have potluck dinners. After we share prayer joys and concerns and take care of any business relating to upcoming events planned to raise funds for missions, we have a program. Often we will have a speaker share with us about a mission or social action project, especially those that serve women, children and youth. Sometimes we work on projects like writing letters to service men and women, making prayer blankets and putting together birthing kits. We like to collect things that are needed for Must Ministries, Murphy Harpst, the Methodist Children's Home, etc. We welcome women and young ladies high school age and older who would like to put their faith into action to join us at Esther Circle. Nicole Kidwell, President of Esther Circle.  

 Ruth Circle meets the 4th Monday of the month from 12:00-2:00pm in the Keheley Center Atrium. We bring our own light lunch and our monthly hostesses provide drinks and snacks to go along with our lunch.We share joys and concerns, have a short business session and have a monthly program, usually about mission projects coming up, community needs and outstanding community centers in our area.Contact Edna Felmlee or June Smalley,  co-chairs of Ruth Circle.

 Due to COVID-19 pandemic, we're not sure when we will meet again but WE WILL MEET AGAIN!!
