Circles

HPCUMC United Methodist Women consists of four circles that meet once a month September through May.  Each Circle and its meetings is open to anyone at the church.  Participating in a circle is a great way to get connected and develop lifelong friendships through sharing and growing in our faith and through acts of service with our various mission projects.

Circle of Grace meets the 3rd Thursday of the month at 9:30 September through May at the church.  Each month we travel to Over-the-Rhine to serve the Wesley Chapel Mission Center community whether it be cleaning out the craft closet or organizing the library.  Contact Laura Tuzun at lbt@cinci.rr.com or Lucinda Hurst at lwhurst@cinci.rr.com to get connected.

Circle of Light meets the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 10:00am September through May at the church.  Programming varies month-to-month.  Circle of Light supports the Anna Louise Inn and the Center for Respite Care. Contact Chyrl Brandt at chyrl_brandt@yahoo.com or Marjorie Stephenson at mastep31@gmail.com to get connected.

Circle of Ruth meets the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 6:30pm September through May at the church.  Programming varies month-to-month. Circle of Ruth supports the Wesley Education Center with various activities such as food pantry donations, fundraising for classroom equipment, teacher assistance/mentoring, assisting families at Christmas with gifts to children in need, and offering treats at various holidays to the deserving, hard-working staff.  We also provide a service day in the spring with grounds work, closet-cleaning and painting. Contact Karen Malone at karen.malone61@gmail.com to get connected.

Circle of Joy meets the 3rd Thursday of the month at 6:30pm September through May at the church.  Programming varies month-to-month.  Circle of Light supports Nast Trinity United Methodist Church in Over-the-Rhine.  Contact Dianna Dixon at ddixon29@cinci.rr.com or Joyce Bates at joycebates@cinci.rr.com to get connected.

In addition to these circle, UMW has many events open to all circle and non-circle “members-at-large” throughout the year including a Dinner Club, Book Club, worship & music services, leadership development opportunities, church-wide pancake breakfasts, luncheons and guest speakers. UMW is open to any women age 14 and up regardless of church membership or affiliation.
