United Methodist Women
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; and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.
We ask for your continued prayers for our leaders as the changes continue for the churches in our conference and our women’s organization.
Our United Methodist Women are making plans to return to our meeting schedule of the 2nd Thursday of each month, except July and August, post Covid-19. Meetings start at 1:30 pm in Fellowship Hall.
Since our president stepped down, the meetings and programs will be shared by the leadership team. We welcome anyone who would like to share.
We pledge our support to our the UMW Conference, local church, Envision, Life Stories, Transitional House, and A Woman’s Place through service and donations. We also continue to fund a scholarship through Aims College.
Other amounts support Kairos (a prison ministry) and Sewing for Service. Please check our current display for copies of Response magazine and maps showing where funds are used by the worldwide organization of United Methodist Women.
Sewing for Service
Sewing for Service days during the summer are July 7, July 21, August 4, August 18.
Sewing for Service meets every Wednesday afternoon in fellowship hall; starting at 1:30. Come join us.
We specialize in making quilts of all sizes – from crib to queen size – and all colors. Many are donated each year. Quilts are also available for sale at reasonable prices.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
Do you know someone who could use a shawl, scarf, port pillow, or “comfort” square? A reminder that this ministry is still alive and well. We have a nice choice available including a couple of quilted shawls. Just contact the church office at 353-5522 or Raylene Shively at email@example.com or 576-0868.
