United Methodist Women Seymour Circle
The United Methodist Women’s (UMW) Seymour groups focus on mission for women, children and youth; not only locally, but nationally and internationally also.
The purpose of the United Methodist Women: “The organized unit of United Methodist Women shall be 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, and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.”
Over the years we have worked on many projects for the church. Some of these projects include making Chrismons for the Christmas tree that are utilized each year, redecorating the restrooms, initiating Hospitality Sundays, serving refreshments in the Narthex before Sunday Service, implementation of the childrens’ bags for small children to use during Sunday Services and many others. We collect Campbell’s labels for Northcott House in Milwaukee and Shurfine labels for the Sav-A-Labels program.
We oversee fund raising events like bake sales, rummage sales, craft sales, and basket bonanzas. Proceeds from these events have helped with the building of the church and more recently the new carpeting and painting of the fellowship hall.
Special yearly events include the Mother Daughter Banquet, Women’s Sunday, Spring Salad Luncheon, and Adopt-a-Family at Christmas. We love to sponsor potluck meals and enjoy fellowship any time we use the kitchen.
Currently there are two UMW circles at the City Site. The Mary Circle, which has been in existence in the church for many years, meets on the third Wednesday of the month at 9:30 a.m. The Miriam Circle, which was formed more recently, meets on the first Wednesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. These groups are open to ladies of the church from teenagers to seniors.
