SPECIAL MISSION RECOGNITION
Please join us in recognizing two UMW for their service and dedication.  Inez Howard from the Wesleyan Circle and JoAnn Magill from the Willard Circle are our honorees.  They are always quick to volunteer and lend a hand whatever the task.  These recommendations are forwarded to the Women's Division of United Methodist Women by the women of the local unit.  Each recipient receives a gold pin from Women's Division to commemorate this honor.  Congratulations to both for this achievement.
 
Purpose
 
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 mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.
   
JUMC Church Circles
 
Our circle meetings routinely include devotion; variety of programs including education and planning for mission support and activities; prayer; and refreshments. 
  • Willard Circle meets on the 4th Monday of most months, from 7 - 9 pm.  The circle supports local, state and international missions through prayer, bake sales, church dinners, and donations.  The circle also keeps in touch with church member shut-ins and college students.  There is an annual outing in late summer, usually a picnic and games.  Willard does not meet in December. 
  • Wesleyan Circle meets the 1st Tuesday of every month, at the church, at 1:30 pm.  The circle sends cards to shut ins, and has a picnic in the summer (spouses invited).  They also have a Christmas dinner and exchange gifts with their prayer partners.  The Wesleyan Circle also supports Portland Promise Center, Lighthouse and Wesley House.  Wesleyan does not meet in January.
If you would like to join a circle, please give the church office a call for more details and information at 267-1437.
