SHINE started with a lunch among friends who discussed their faith, their connection to Christ and their shared desire to create a stronger, diverse and more connected ministry within Custer Road UMC. Our sincere desire is for women to find a place to connect, grow in God’s love and grace, and to find meaningful and lasting relationships with one another.

The United Methodist Women (UMW) is a community of women whose purpose is to know God and 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.
United Methodist Women has organized “circles” within the unit to encourage smaller groups of women with common interests to meet in order to learn, share and support each other. All groups invite anyone with an interest to visit and become a part of that group.
(Ask your circle leader about making child care reservations. Reservations must be submitted to Children’s Ministry a minimum of four days prior to the start time of said meeting or event. Cancellation of previously-made child care reservations is appreciated.)
