About our name
Our District is named for El Camino Real, a major road that runs north-south through many communities in our area.

“El Camino Real,” or “The King’s Highway,” was established in the early 1800’s as a route linking the missions, pueblos, and presidios, from San Diego to Sonoma. Today the route is marked by replicas of mission bells, as it had been in 1915. See more about El Camino Real and the mission bells here.

United Methodist Women
United Methodist Women shall be a community of women whose purpose is to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative, supportive fellowship; and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.

      Hi Heather,
      Thanks for asking. Our District UMW Treasurer Sharon’s address is in the annual ECR District UMW directory and in the printed Mission Link newsletter. I’m also sending it to you by email.
