UMW Ministries - Activities
Like most of you, I am sad to see the summer coming to its unofficial close. The older I get the more my knees and I enjoy the heat and the sun. I love summer road trips, grilling our dinners, and my rare escapes to the beach. It doesn't all have to stop when the school bell rings (especially for those of us who no longer put kids on the bus), but it still feels like the end of something good.
There is a bright side to autumn's approach and that is our church community. Attendance is down in the summer with so many families away and I have missed you. I look to our community for faith, support, forgiveness and joy. I hope that you feel the same sense of love and community that I do when you walk through the doors of WUMC.
A great joy at WUMC comes from being part of United Methodist Women. I am constantly challenged by my career, home, social life and the world at large, but UMW and the more intimate Hannah Circle give me an opportunity to truly “draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith.” As a group we have the opportunity to try and make sense of the world and help others do the same. We “spur one another on toward love and good deeds” as we grow in our faith and love for one another.
As a woman in our church you are already part of UMW, but if you would like to join a circle or start a new circle with friends, drop by the church office, put a note in the collection plate or find a fellow UMW member. Better yet, join us on October 4th at 6:30PM in Fellowship Hall for a Mystery Play & Dessert Event. We would love to welcome you into our supportive fellowship.
