The women at Holland's have several opportunities to participate in Bible study, community outreach, missions, and Christian Fellowship by joining the UMW and/or one of their sponsored circles.

UMW is the core group of women at Holland's.  Our purpose is to further missions through participation in global ministries of the church.  Any woman at Holland's can be a member of the UMW.   For general information about the UMW, click here.
