The women of Tifton First United Methodist Church's UMW Circle 2 have faithfully supported Wesley Glen Ministries for 15 years by preparing Christmas gifts for approximately 50 residents of the ministry's homes in Macon, Byron and Saint Marys. The 40 women of Circle 2 are "pen-pals" with these residents and communicate by mail with them throughout the year. In the spirit of Christmas, the project of filling huge bags for each person was adopted. After filling the "wish list" bags, the ladies always enjoy a wonderful lunch at the home of Julie Hunt. Special guests at the 2013 luncheon were Rev. Sam Rogers and Helen Rogers, the Circle's previous teacher. Rev. Rogers gave the group an inspirational message of Christmas. The bags were then taken to Macon, where the church's youth hosted a Christmas party and delivered the gifts to the Wesley Glen residents. Tifton First United Methodist's congregation and the women of UMW Circle 2 spent more than $5,000 on this South Georgia Conference project.
Tifton First UMC's UMW Circle 2 meets monthly at Shoney's. Pat Doss is the Bible teacher and Connie Ewing is the chairman.
