United Methodist Women

United Methodist Women - Christ UMC

The purpose of United Methodist Women (UMW) is to “know God” and to “develop a creative, supportive fellowship.” The missions of UMW focus on needs of women and children.  See the UMW bulletin board outside the gym for details of our current mission projects.

The UMW of Christ Methodist is made up of women of various ages that have many different interests. There are monthly small group meetings called circles. THe UMW also sponsors luncheons and informatonal meetings. Those occasions will be announced on the home page of this website.

Any woman can be a member of UMW. There are no dues and no attendance requirements. We invite all women of CUMC to come join the fun!

For  over 140 years, members of United Methodist Women and predecessor organizations have been involved in mission that includes prayer, study and action. The Reading Program is a study opportunity, but it should also lead to action as it encourages members to think critically about current issues through an annual selection of member-reviewed books. It offers an excellent opportunity to deepen your spirituality and to broaden your understanding of our mission work. There are different levels of the Reading Program that ladies can achieve by meeting certain criteria.

DAYS FOR GIRLS: 

Days for Girls is a non-profit organization that helps girls stay in school and retain dignity, giving back important days of their lives. Most girls in developing countries miss school during their periods; many eventually dropping out. Days for Girls aims to do something about that by empowering girls, women, and communities through providing access to sustainable feminine hygiene, as well as menstrual health management training. Various organizations help the cause by making high-quality, washable, reusable feminine hygiene kits. 

Volunteers from Christ UMC have been assisting the cause by making cloth drawstring bags for the kits since 2017. This is an assembly line construction method, with jobs for sewers and non-sewers. New volunteers are always welcome! For questions about this mission opportunity, contact Sue Nissen through the church office, christumc.secretary@gmail.com.
