May News & Notes


Welcome! The United Methodist Women made a special announcement on Thursday, March 2, 2022! After 50 years as the United Methodist Women, our organization in now United Women in Faith! We’re the same Unit, same goals, and Purpose, but with a new outlook and Mission Statement! UWF wants to be more inclusive in every facet of our organization!


With that in mind, our next two meetings will be held in the evening! Hopefully, this will give our women who work an opportunity to attend! So, mark your calendars and join us! We’ll be looking for you!! Bring a friend—or two! 



Attentions all readers, young and not-so-young!  

The UMW reading program is open to everyone!  We have added new books to our lending library for all ages and invite you to participate.  There is a sign out sheet in our lending library along with information about the program.  You can also contact members of UMW for more information or follow this link:    https://www.unitedmethodistwomen.org/readingprogramYou can get books from other sources such as the public library as well.    A small group meets every other month to discuss what we are reading for anyone who might be interested in our book club.   Those who read one book from each category and return the form before the end of August will get a certificate and be entered in a drawing.  

Happy Reading!

Wallace Family Life Center: WFLC is a recipient of UWF funds, its only source of funding. When you make a pledge to our Unit, $5 of your pledge goes to this worthy cause. Please donate to this wonderful outreach center! Thank you!
