United Methodist Women UNIT
The Unit (all the Circle members meeting together) usually meets on the 1st Tuesday of each month at 9:30 am in the Fellowship Hall to conduct the business of the group, to have programs on different missions projects, to grow spiritually, and to enjoy fellowship. The May and December Unit Meetings are held on the 1st Saturday of that month, so our members who work outside the home are able to attend. Our two major fundraisers are a Ladies' Tea in the Spring and an Auction for Missions in the Fall.
The beginning of United Methodist Women goes back to 1869 in Boston when we were known as the Women's Foreign Missionary Society, but here at Community UMC, we trace our roots back to 1915. Since that beginning in Boston years ago, our name has changed several times, but our heritage of service to others (especially to women, children, and youth) continues and is constantly expanding.
