Faith's United Methodist Women are 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 global ministries of the church.
Our four circles meet monthly from September through May and are the main way we connect with eachother. While circle meetings are sometimes just for fun and fellowship, we work on mission projects at many of them. For example, Friendship Circle wraps gifts for Cunningham Children's Home one Saturday morning in early December.
We also have several activities for all of Faith's United Methodist Women including an annual UMW/UMM breakfast, UMW Sunday in October, Church Women United in May and workdays at the Midwest Mission Distribution Center.
Through fundraising efforts and pledges, we support local mission including Cunningham Children's Home, Faith's UMC Food Pantry, ASP Faith Youth, the Daily Bread Soup Kitchen (backpack project), and global mission through district support, Operation Christmas Child (shoebox ministries), World Thank Offering, and many others.
All women of Faith Church are welcome at any United Methodist Women meeting. Learn more about our circles, projects, and missions by contacting us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, calling the church office, or stopping by the information center on a Sunday morning.
