United Methodist Women

umwlogo

The organized unit of 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.
  • To expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.

We usually meet on the second Thursday of the month at 10am for morning meetings. When we have special evening meetings, we move to a different week due to Church Council meeting on the second Thursday in the parlor. Look at our schedule below. All events are in the Benedict Hall parlor unless otherwise noted.


Sept 9th (Saturday) – This is our main fundraiser… selling desserts and crafts at the church Chicken BBQ! Come join us to volunteer or to support missions by buying a delicious meal, wonderful desserts and getting some shopping done by purchasing crafts that women have made the past few months!  The event is 2:00 – 7:00pm in Benedict Hall.

Oct 19th (Thursday), 7:00 – 8:30pm – It’s a game night! Bring a snack to share if you’d like but come prepared to enjoy fellowship with other women. Child care will be available if requested by the Sunday before (Oct 15).

Nov 9th (Thursday), 10:00 – 11:30am –  Bring your “World Thank” offering to the meeting as we dedicate monies that celebrate times of gratitude the past year.

Also on Nov. 9th, we’re going to work on our stories for the UMW Living Timeline. Come prepared to document a story about how your life or other lives in our community have been impacted by women’s work and mission. The Living Timeline is a national program to help celebrate the upcoming 150th anniversary of United Methodist Women. We’ll use artwork, written pieces, audio or video to share our stories on a bulletin board at church.
