Groups for Women

For centuries sisters in Christ have found friendship, comfort, accountability and assistance in relationships nurtured through faith. Faithful volunteers of McKendree UMC organize and facilitate the following groups to support the women in our church and community. If you would like to start a group please contact Pastor Ryan at
