UMW Reading Program


Calling all women…do you know about the UMW Reading Program?

The United Methodist Women (UMW) have a reading program that covers all aspects of Christian life. Every year new books are added to the reading list. In the library are two shelves with the books we have from the reading list. You can also find the reading list of books that are in the Merkel Library and the form for keeping track of what you read on the end of the bookcase. You can find the complete list of books on the, United Methodist Women website, or leave a message in the Merkel Library and we’ll make sure you receive one.

If you have questions on UMW or the UMW Reading Program you can contact Carole Ring,
