United Methodist Women

Reveille UMC
Come enjoy wonderful fellowship and meet new friends at Reveille United Methodist Women. 

United Methodist Women is the largest denominational faith organization for women, with approximately 800,000 members whose mission is to be an advocate for the oppressed and dispossessed, to build supportive community among women, and to engage in fostering growth in mission education.

Among the local missions that Reveille UMW currently supports are the Chesterfield Women’s Detention and Diversion Center, Swansboro Elementary School, All God’s Children Camp for the children of incarcerated mothers, camperships at Westview on the James, The Hermitage retirement community, and United Methodist Family Services. 

Reveille UMW is open to all women within and outside Reveille, and is composed of five groups, known as circles, that allow for closer fellowship time, programs, and projects. The circles have diverse programs including speakers, book reviews, Bible study, outings, and outreach. Each circle meets once a month, from September to May. All the circles come together each quarter for a general meeting. The general meetings include a guest speaker from a not-for-profit that benefits women and children. The program is followed by lunch. Child care is available for general meetings.
