October 14 is United Methodist Women (UMW) Sunday!
- UMW Vision: Turning faith, hope, and love into action on behalf of women, children, and youth around the world. UMW strives to be a community of women, to know God, to advocate for social justice including domestic violence, racial injustice and anything that can impact women and children. UMW is a supportive all-inclusive Christian membership celebrating the joys and responding to the needs of others while working for the common good. A place for spiritual growth through the mission, events, and activities in which we participate, including both hands-on projects within our church and community, and providing financial support to other worthy missions. Organized for over a hundred years, our membership is over one million women and next year we celebrate 150 years of our Endowment Fund for the future UMW women.
- UMW Purpose: To be 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 the local and global ministries of the church.
Is UMW the place for you? Join us on UMW Sunday and find out more!
In celebration of UMW Sunday, we are having a guest pastor, Rev. Inell Claypool, in all three worship services. Rev. Inell Claypool is out of the Upper New York Annual Conference and serves beyond the local church as Chaplain at Wesleyan Homes in Georgetown. When she is not regularly preaching at Wesleyan, she is on the Ministry Team at First UMC in Georgetown. She may look familiar since she and her husband have attended our Crossroads service at First UMC, Round Rock.
First Church UMW is a community of women worshipping, sharing, praying, studying, serving and working together. We are a creative & supportive organization that works with women, children and youth in the local and global community. Young mothers, retirees, career women, married, single…all are welcome.
