Women

Are you looking for a community of women eager to make a difference for Christ in the world? We have several women’s groups at MUMC where you can plug in. Women young and old will enjoy retreats, knitting, aerobics, Bible study and more!

Aerobics

Our biweekly aerobics sessions will keep you in shape! Stop by every Tuesday and Thursday morning at 9:00-10:00am for a heart-pounding workout! Mats and weights are provided, but you should bring a water bottle and wear loose-fitting clothes. Classes are just $10 for 8 sessions, and childcare is available for $2. Call Corrine at 636.394.2247 for more information.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

We get together every third Wednesday of the month at 7 p.m. to knit beautiful shawls. We pray with them and then pass them on to those who need the prayers at hospitals, nursing homes, and other places where people hurt. Contact Kathy Zilligen at 636.527.8307 for more details.
