Women's Ministries

How would you describe yourself? A wife? A mother? A working woman? A homemaker? A retiree?  A sister?  A daughter?  No matter.  God sees you as a beautiful and spiritual woman and He hungers for a relationship with you. Women who want to study God's word and discover what He has prepared in advance for us will find friendship, acceptance and community in these cross generational groups. Women will find support for one another here as they grow together in the Lord.

For more information on any of the events or groups and what they are studying, please contact Myrna Lorenz at 317.535.8555 ext. 1303 or

Women, Worship and the Word

Tuesday Eevniengs 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. in the Chapel
Co-leaders: Myrna Lorenz, Julie Buck, Jackie Cummins, and Amy McCabe

"Behold I am dong a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert." Isaiah 43:19

Attention all women!
You are invited to come and experience worship and study God's Word. In Women, Worship, and the Word, we will sing praises to God, spend quiet time in the Word and learn to listen and respond to what God has to say to us.

Our lives are busy, we have so much to squeeze in every day. We know we should carve out time for reflection and just to be still in God's presence. We offer this to answer the cry of our hearts to be closer to God. (a time of refreshing and renewal)

No preparation is needed, just bring your Bible. Come as you are and come as you can. Women, Worship, and the Word will be held weekly beginning again on January 13, 2015. Contact Myrna Lorenz with questions.

Women's Prayer Group

1st and 3rd Monday of each month
In the Chapel
Currently the group is praying through the Lord's Prayer

Is UMW Calling You?
Are you looking for a way to connect to other women? Do you want to know women who share your beliefs, your interests, your love of the Lord? Do you want to have a little fun? Consider joining one of Mt. Auburn’s women’s circles through United Methodist Women.

Mt. Auburn currently has two different circles. Besides organizing events for the entire church, like the UMW Mission Breakfasts or Women’s Retreat, each UMW group generally meets once a month in member homes or at the church. There is fellowship and generally a program or Bible study at each meeting. Each circle supports various mission projects as well as supporting missions of the larger organized unit of UMW through annual pledges.  Below are dates and times each circle meets.

  • Friendship Circle—Meets 7 p.m., 2nd Friday of each month and some Thursdays (no meetings in June, July and August)
    For more info, contact Beth Coffey.

  • Shalom Circle—Meets 7 p.m., 2nd Monday of each month
    For more info, contact Marlene Withrow.

Women’s Quilting Group
If quilting is your thing, join this group! They meet the second and fourth Tuesday of each month from 9:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. in the library. They make beautiful quilts that are given to new parents, shut-ins, and others that need a warm reminder that they are loved. Contact Pat Hertel for more information (885-7179)

Prayer Shawl Ministry
If you like to knit or crochet or want to learn, join us at 9:30 a.m. in Trinity Hall on the 2nd & 4th Mondays of each month or at 6:30 p.m. the 2nd Monday of each month in Trinity Hall.

About the Ministry: Prayer Shawls are given for many reasons: as a comfort after a loss, during an illness, at times of stress and other times when comfort is needed. The shawl maker begins with prayers and blessings for the recipient. The intentions are continued throughout the creation of the shawl. Upon completion, a final blessing is offered before the shawl is sent on its way.

For more information, contact Rose Gotthart at 886-7299, Sandy Newcomer at 771-7164 or Ramona Nicholsen at 560-0033.
