Descriptions of Ongoing Groups

Men’s Ministry   
The mission of the BCUMC Men’s Ministry is to provide a venue to encourage its members and others to strengthen their commitment to follow Christ in their daily living, by putting their faith in action.  All men are welcome to attend the group which meets the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month in the 2nd floor conference room.  Contact Mike Daly at

UMW – Abigail Circle  
If you are considering joining a UMW Circle, Abigail welcomes you to come to one of our meetings and check us out! We meet the first Wednesday of the month in the Parlor at 10:00 AM. 

We are active in a variety of service projects including the Church Union's Reading & Mentoring Program and Brother's Brother Foundation.  Questions, contact Trish Riani 412-334-6814, Carol Coyle 412-228-8407 or any other Abigail member. We'd love to welcome you to our group.

UMW—Esther Circle 
The Esther Circle is a newly-formed group within the United Methodist Women. We meet on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Parlor, and we welcome new members!

Inspired by Esther’s remarkable courage and strength in sharing her faith, we hope to encourage young women (pre-teen through young adult) to grow deeper in their faith through a challenging phase of life.  We have many outreach ideas planned for the year. 

Our first plan is to partner with Sisterfriend.org, a local organization that supports menstrual hygiene for vulnerable women and girls through the collection and distribution of feminine hygiene products. Sisterfriend.org partners with food pantries, homeless shelters, and underserved schools to distribute needed products, raise awareness, and provide leadership activities for young women.
If you have any questions or if you’d like to get more involved, please contact Sarah Gintner or Elizabeth Meriwether at 412.882.9300.

UMW—Miriam Circle  
We meet at 12:30 p.m. on the 2nd Monday of the month at Calabria’s restaurant on Rt. 88.  In addition to participating in the activities of our church we make blankets for shut-ins and nursing homes and give our monetary support to the church and its missionary projects.  For more information call Margaret Mima at 412-653-3651.
