Ladies' Night Circle is opened to any woman attending the White Cloud United Methodist Church.  We meet on the third Tuesday of the month at 7:00 PM in the lobby of the church building. The Night Circle provides the Upper Room Devotionals for our church family.  We also provide the paper supplies for funeral luncheons. We also donate money for mission projects for our church, city, and mission projects sponsors by The United Methodist Church. At our monthly meeting besides doing the planning of upcoming events and projects, we have a devotional and enjoy a time of dessert and fellowship with each other.  For more information, contact Barbara Anderson at 231-689-1063 or the church secretary, Barb Thatcher, at the church office (231-689-5911).
