United Methodist Women (UMW)

Sunbury UMW is made up of four circles that meet monthly for fellowship, a program and sometimes food. They work throughout the church, community and world in many ways to help those in need through their prayers and giving. These Circles meet year-round.

Our fall gathering is usually the first Thursday in October at 7:00 p.m. You do not need to be a member of a circle to attend. We have devotions and snacks.

Our Christmas gathering and gift exchange program is usually the first Thursday in December.

Our Spring Brunch gathering is for all women and is held one Saturday in April. Any woman in the Sunbury United Methodist Church is welcome to attend these gatherings and we extend an invitation to you to come and study, fellowship with us and meet new friends.

In May, we have an All Daughters' Banquet where all women, young ladies and girls are celebrated.  We enjoy fellowship, a program and a wonderful meal cooked and served by the men of our church,

Our Circles, meeting times, and activities are listed below. Contact the leaders through the church office at 740-965-3813.
