United Methodist Women (UMW) is a worldwide organization with a very strong mission focus. Projects and concerns include issues on local, national, and international levels. Small groups, called circles, meet on various days of the month and at various times of the day to provide many options. There are also several special interest groups such as yarncrafters, quilters, and book clubs. The Monona United Methodist Women often join with women from other local churches for retreats and mission projects. Joining a circle is a comfortable way to get to know members of our church. Many women have been circle friends for years, and you’ll find that newcomers are always warmly welcomed.
We are proud to support small farmer co-ops in the US and globally through the Equal Exchange. We, along with other church denominations, provide a market place for farmers through the Authentic Fair Trade as part of the Equal Exchange. This allows farmers to stay on their farms. You may which to purchase sustainable Authentic Fair Trade (AFT) products for gifts this season. New this year, we are offering an AFT GIFT Certificate. AFT products will be sold at the Craft Bazaar Nov. 23rd and on Sunday, Nov 10th, 24th, and Dec. 8th. THANK YOU for being part of building a wonderful church community mission of Justice, Equality, and Sustainability. The Prophets of old and Jesus said, if you want PEACE work for JUSTICE.
