The purpose of the United Methodist Women (UMW) is to know God, 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.

The Murrieta UMW meets quarterly on the fourth (4th) Sunday of the month at 12:15-2:00 PM in the Sanctuary.   We invite all women in our church to come and join in the camaraderie and spiritual growth at our meetings.

Methodism founder John Wesley knew the key to social change would be small-group gatherings, and so does United Methodist Women (UMW). Subgroups or circles allow local church UMW members an opportunity to focus on special mission interests in smaller groups. They provide greater flexibility and freedom for participation, nurture and leadership

development. Some women find that their circle is their primary connection for prayer, study and spiritual growth. 


Sonrisers Circle would like to invite you to meet with a loving group ofwomen once a month to spread God’s love by serving our church and our community. Want to find out more?  Please come and join them. The Sonrisers is a fellowship and service group which supports the youth in our church along with others here in Murrieta.   They sponsor a chili cook off in the fall and a spaghetti dinner in the spring to raise money for camperships for the youth in our church.  We also support MUMC’s Colonia Project in Mexicali,

Mexico. Sonrisers meets the third (3rd) Saturday of each month at 8:oo AM.  For more information contact Toni Spencer (619) 504-8950 or Carol

What is a UMW Circle?

Some women of the Church have started asking about the Circles that are active in our Church. What is a Circle? Who belongs to a Circle? Can I join a Circle? If you belong to United Methodist Women (UMW) and don’t belong to one of the three active Circles OR you would like to know more about the Circles and are not a member of UMW, you are invited to a gathering to find answers to your questions on Saturday, June 2nd  at 10:00 A.M. at the home of Ann Reese. Please RSVP by May 28th  by email at  or by phone at (951)304-3549.
