United Methodist Women

 

 United Methodist Women Support Missions for
Women, Children, and Youth
      

 
"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".
 
 
The UMW unit of One Spirit United Methodist Church is an active presence within our church. They provide funeral dinners for church families if needed, set up a hospitality table at the church for voters at election time, provide food and service during community bridge events at the church, and they visit and send cards to shut-ins and members who are hospitalized.
 
Unit meetings are held on the first Thursday of each  month, March thru June and August thru November, at 11:00 am in the Fellowship Hall. A luncheon follows a short business meeting and then a special program is presented. Many of the programs give information on special projects, the reading program, or special activities. In addition, there is an "ingathering" of items for one of our local charity agencies.
 
One special annual event is the Women's Spiritual Retreat. This day-long retreat each fall helps women of the church to explore and deepen their faith. Another event is the Annual Rummage Sale. This takes place each spring and includes clothing, furniture, household goods, tools, collectibles, books, toys, and much more!
 
Our funds are raised through pledges, special offerings such as our Corsage for Mission ribbon sales, the annual Rummage Sale, and the annual Bake Sale. Pledges and other special offerings are turned in to the District UMW and combined with the others to fund projects in the United States and around the world.
