Leader: Kathryn Cloutier, (901) 233-2548

We don’t even know all their names. Some are referred to only by their nationality. Some are known only by the place where they lived. Some would become queens, while others would live on the fringes of society. One would give birth to a nation, and one would give birth to the Messiah. Their culture often overlooked or discounted the contributions of women, yet the writers of Scripture found these women and the role they played remarkable to the telling of God's story.

UMW Circles meet on a monthly basis at various times (day & evening) and locations (homes, Christ Church & East Ministry Center). UMW Circles are most active from September through May.  

UMW is 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

  • To expand the concept of missions through participating in local and global ministries of the church

Questions? Contact Vickie Wilkinson, UMW President, (901) 497-6257.


Baby Showers

Expecting a baby? Know someone in our church who is expecting? Please let us know. UMW will host baby showers to honor these moms and help foster relationships between women of all ages. These will be in the Parlor at 12:30 p.m., so stop by right after church for a special time of food and fellowship. Bring a package of diapers, wipes or a Kroger gift card. If your circle would like to host one of these dates, contact Vickie Wilkinson or Laura Greenwell.
