United Methodist Women is a worldwide organization of women organized for mission, turning faith, hope and love into action on behalf of women, children and youth around the world. At Centenary we offer groups known as Circles, which meet on various days and times for educational meetings, book study, service projects and long term fellowship and support.  We invite you to learn more and join us in service and fellowship.​
