UMW Circles

are how we connect in small groups with shared interests.

We are women who live in community with other women on the same journey of knowing, loving, and serving God.

United Methodist Women put faith, hope and love into action as a supportive, inclusive community who strives to improve the lives of women, children and youth locally and around the globe. Come join us in building communities of strong women! For more information, complete this form or contact our UMW President, Lynda Shillito at

Strangers No More

Strangers No More includes Jewish and Christian women from around Kansas City getting to know one another as women of strong yet differing faiths. Read this KC Star Article for their story! They meet regularly online for lively “Coffee & Conversation” — pour yourself a cup of coffee and join in! More information

Ministry to Incarcerated Families

Learn about the L.E.A.D (Ladies Empowered And Driven) at Topeka Correctional Facility, click this previously recorded video presentation, and consider helping families impacted by incarceration. Volunteer to serve as subject matter experts, to support family retreats, or to donate necessary supplies to help bring healing and hope to children.
