The Broomfield United Methodist Women sponsor seven different Circles, which function as Small Groups devoted to fellowship, learning and service. Most Circles meet once a month, except for the Viola-Lois Circle, which meets twice monthly on the first and third Saturdays from 8:15-9:30am for Bible Study and fellowship. In addition, the United Methodist Women sponsor several general events throughout the year which are open to all women. To find the right Circle for you, call Myrna Prentice, President, at 303-469-1633!
