Women's Ministry

JOY Circle
3rd Thursday, 7:15pm, Fellowship Hall.

Ahhh, the Women's Ministry. Well, if you want to laugh, cry, debate, discuss, learn and most importantly, grow, Bethel's Women's Ministry is something for you to get into.

We are part of the United Methodist Women (UMW) organization. This gives us a chance to have both our own personalized program at Bethel while contributing to a larger purpose and group that reaches out locally and worldwide. We have a chance to make a difference together that we would never have made on our own.

We have an energetic group, the JOY Circle. The JOY Circle meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 7pm in the Fellowship Hall. We generally bring a dish to share and have supper and a meeting. Sometimes we have a special meeting at another time/date. So, make sure you watch ENews and the newsletter to hear of any changes.

These women range in age from 30s to 90s and constantly prove that you are never too young or too old to do something for God. Everyone needs a hug now and then, a shoulder to laugh or cry on, someone to pray for them. This is a group for you.

UMW is primarily a mission-directed organization so everything we do has something to do with missions. At the end of each year we empty our donations out to missions, local to international, then we start over raising donations for new missions each new year. You never realize how gratifying it is to give away money until you come to a meeting where the final monies are being divided up. How exciting to see what all God does with the efforts we give Him.

For more information about the general UMW program, please visit the UMW website. For more information about the General Board of Global Ministries, click here.

You are always welcome to come join us each month or whenever you can. We have a couple of special events throughout the year that you definitely don't want to miss, even if you can't be a part of the regular meetings. They are fun, invigorating, and well worth a Saturday morning out.

You do not have to be a member of Bethel or a member of any United Methodist Church to come to this program. God wants us all to be involved in His missions, so come on in!!
