UMW Circles Meeting in January & February
Our UMW Circles are groups of women who usually meet monthly to enjoy some fellowship and fun. Although face to face meetings are difficult right now, they are not impossible! Ruth Circle has met on the Town Common and in the Prayer Garden at church. Rachel Circle has met via Zoom. Staying connected during this time maintains our sense of community. 
The list of upcoming circle meetings are below. If you would like to join one, please reach out to the circle contact, listed at the end of this email.

Dwelling Place Schedule
The Dwelling Place is a soup kitchen, located in the Methodist Church in Woburn. Our Circles prepare and serve the meal to the 25 to 35 guests that attend. If you have any questions or need assistance when serving, please contact  Ann St. Onge. If you are not a Circle member and would like to help out, please reach out to the Circle Contact for the month in which you want to help. The Dwelling Place is still serving, but the meals are all given to go. Ann has details so be sure to contact her if your Circle is serving in the next few months.
