United Methodist Women

United Methodist Women

 

Our purpose is four-fold:

*to know God

*to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ

*to develop a creative, supportive fellowship

*to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.

Missions is what we are about — not only here and near, but also the not-so-near and the far, far away.  Our money stretches from our own backyard to all around the globe to help women, children, and youth in need.  We’re a hands-on group, too, helping local missions through personal involvement.  Our main fundraiser is serving dinners to Harmony’s United Methodist Men (once a month, 10 months out of the year).

Harmony’s UMW is made up of two circles which meet monthly (except during the summer).  One circle meets mostly on-line and consists of younger women in their 30’s and 40’s.  The other circle meets during the day; the women in this circle are older, ranging in age from mid-40-s up to 90+.

There’s LOTS more to tell about United Methodist Women, but space does not allow all of their story to be told here.  If you want to know more, contact Mary Preston, Harmony’s UMW president, by phone (540-338-4152) or by e-mail (K4LJH@comcast.net).
