Maple Springs Women's Retreat
The Women's Retreat is organized annually in February to give women a Christian retreat experience that will grow their faith as they experience God's gifts through the scriptures, prayer, small group discussions, and music. Volunteers are welcome on the planning committee and all women are invited to attend the weekend retreat. For more information, contact Beverly Lyons (336-830-1040).
United Methodist Women (UMW)
This women's group was founded in 1907 and was the first of the fellowship groups here at Maple Springs. It has been going strong ever since! Today, there are more than 120 active Maple Springs UMW members engaged in local, national, and worldwide mission. This group focuses on supporting women, youth and children as they grow closer to God and become better friends. This group also focuses on visiting homebound members of our church family.
The UMW has two main fellowship components:
- A small group experience in UMW Circles, and
- General meetings with a speaker and entertainment.
Circles meet monthly and details are listed below. General meetings occur quarterly. For more information, please contact Nancy Murray (336-377-9864)
