Social Action assists women in the Church in study, action and reflection regarding current and emerging social, economic, environmental and political issues.
Areas that fall under Social Action are Thanksgiving baskets, Easter baskets, and Christmas gifts for the children (Angel Tree) delivered to needy families.
Membership Nurturing is the outreach that helps women members of the Church to see membership in UMW as a great opportunity for spiritual growth, leadership development, involvement in mission and meaningful participation in study and social action.
Women of our Church stand right beside the men…we usher, act as greeters and readers, sing in the choir, serve on commissions as well as clean-up crews following dinner and programs, deliver food baskets, purchase gifts and bake cookies – and that’s only within the Church.
*See UMW bookcase at the west end of Fellowship Hall for collection baskets and information about additional volunteer opportunities.
The United Methodist Women’s Division chooses the books. Each book has been read by three evaluators before the book is put on the reading list.The Division does not intend the readers accept each word or idea.You may or may not agree – either is all right. They care and want you to be a knowledgeable and caring Christian about current issues.
In the Library, there are also copies of the “Response” and “New World Outlook Magazines.”
The books are located on the East wall of the Church Library.
