The LOVE Circle usually meets each month on the 3rd Monday at 10:00 a.m. in Room # 4 up stairs. After the Program several women eat lunch together at a local cafe. LOVE is the original women’s group of CLUMC which was established close to the time the church was founded in 1980. Many of LOVE Programs are based on the United Methodist Women’s Studies which look at current events focusing on, mission, geographical and spiritual topics. The UMW Reading Program is encouraged throughout the year as well.

We Hope to see you at HOPE… and…We’d Love to see you at LOVE! You might be the answer to someone’s prayer or someone might be an answer to your prayer. There’s a chair waiting for you…and… there is a friend waiting to meet you! Come!

Care Bear Ministry

Our little Care Bears are tenderly “dressed” with love by the UM Women with left over bows, buttons, lace, quilts etc. and are meant to lift your spirits in times of difficulty. If you or someone have lost a loved one, or if you or your neighbor is sick or recovering from surgery, maybe you or a friend just need encouragement, please let the office know. CLUMC and Care Bears want you to know We Care!
