EUMC Women’s Groups

A community of women whose purpose is to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ.  We create supportive fellowships. We also participate in local, state, national, and world missions.  The EUMC Women’ group regularly meets in four circles.  Meetings are at the Church unless otherwise stated.

Koinonia Circle has ongoing bible studies and donates to the Rescue Mission. We make items for the yearly Holiday Fair in November.

Piecemakers meet weekly to make handcrafted items for the yearly Holiday Fair. All money for the Women’s budget comes from this fair.

Charity Circle has ongoing studies dealing with current situations in today’s society. They also make handcrafted items for the yearly Holiday Fair. Several members of this circle work closely with the Etowah Thrift Shop which is owned by The Council on Aging and supports organizations to include Meals on Wheels and the EUMC Fishes and Loaves Food Pantry.

Hope Circle instituted the EUMC Hope Scholarship for members of the congregation who are graduating High School seniors. They support youth retreats and mission trips and facilitate fundraisers (ex., creating cookbooks) whose proceeds are allocated to recipients of the Hope Scholarship. They are also the main source of handcrafted Prayer Shawls, given to EUMC who are ill and/or recovering from surgery. The Hope Circle also began the distribution of Christmas Cookie Trays to shut-ins during the Christmas season.
