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.
Mission Highlight - Valentine's Day Bake Sale
Thank you bakers and buyers! The people at MUMC are generous indeed! UMW realized $202 from the bake sale on Sunday, Feb. 9th, in spite of the snowy weather. We are very grateful for all those that baked and those that purchased goods. You might already know that the UMW supports mission projects worldwide with an annual pledge of $1850. Proceeds from our fundraisers and members' pledges allow us to make that contribution to the District. Thank you very much for your generosity.
