All women of the church are invited and encouraged to join a circle. It is a wonderful opportunity to meet new people, make new friends, and enjoy fun and fellowship as we seek to serve others.
Trinity’s UMW is composed of two circles which meet at the church on the second Tuesday of each month September-June. The circles are Gwaltney-Jacquette circle which meets at 11am and Susannah Wesley circle which meets at 7pm. UMW’s ministry focus is missions to women, children and youth.
The purpose of the United Methodist Women (UMW) is to know God, to experience fellowship, and expand the concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.
Through our UMW’s ministry focus on women, children and youth, each circle conducts fund raising projects to contribute to missions and other areas of need. The annual Brunswick Stew sale in the fall, a major project, and one that is eagerly awaited by the whole community, helps us support several community organizations and projects. Circle members make prayer shawls, donate and assemble health kits and layettes for UMCOR, work in C.O.P.’s food pantry, hold a Birthday Party in January for nursing home residents, and many other projects.
UMW donates to many worthy causes, including Relay for Life, Christian Outreach Project, Western Tidewater Free Clinic, Operation Smile, Horses for Heroes, Wesley Community Service Center, Mattaponi Healing Eagle Clinic and AGAPE on the Eastern Shore.
