United Methodist Women 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.

Please contact umw@chambleeumc.org for any questions!


Circles are the heart of UMW, providing women the opportunity to meet in small groups to gather for fellowship, service, study and spiritual growth. Each Circle has its own purpose and style, but all are focused on connecting Chamblee First United Methodist women in a more intimate setting. Circles always seek new members and welcome visitors.

Our ladies grow in Christian fellowship each month by participating in service projects that benefit the church and other ministries. Some of our projects include donating items to kids in need at local schools and other mission projects. We meet at the church each month.

We support UMW and church mission projects throughout the year.

The Jessie Wallace Circle has a long history at Chamblee First United Methodist. Our members, who meet monthly in a member’s home, are primarily working women and retirees. Malachi’s Storehouse is our primary mission project—donating diapers throughout the year and contributing to their Christmas shop. Our Circle is also very active in all church and UMW sponsored activities.
