RUTH CIRCLE

Ruth's Circle is made up of a diverse group of women at First-UMC! We have women of all ages and all walks of life (working women, working moms, & stay-at-home moms.) We all have one thing in common, though - we love to stay involved within our community as well as in our church community! Many Ruth's Circle members are either leaders of or serve on the Education Committee, Children's Ministry, Family Ministry, and Evangelism Committee, many assist with the UMY ministry, many are Sunday School teachers, and our own Belinda Brewer is the current President of the United Methodist Women at our church!

Ruth's Circle meets on Monday evenings at various times throughout the year, and often get together for fellowship activities. The picture on our page was from an outing at Wild Mountain Art Studio in Farmington (a Sip & Paint night!) We organize the annual children's Easter Egg Hunt which takes place on Palm Sunday of every year. This past year, the hunt was held at Rich Park, and we saw a large turn-out of children from the Mocksville community, in addition to children from our own church. Ruth's Circle's largest fundraising initiative is our bi-annual children's consignment sale, which takes place every spring and fall. We see a large turn-out of consignors and shoppers every season who either sell or purchase children's clothing, shoes, toys, equipment, and products. All profits that are made from the sales go towards mission efforts right in our own community (i.e. - helping families in need, families facing large medical bills, sponsoring the youth's summer mission trips, just to name a few.)
