UMW Sunday

In 1894 The Women’s Society was organized at the newly formed Central Methodist Church, with seventeen charter members. In 1895 they became interested in foreign missions and donated $50.75 to that vital work; today that record of giving to missions exceeds $35,000 each year. Although the name has changed over the years - Lambuth Auxilliary, Missionary Society, Woman’s Missionary Society, Woman’s Society of Christian Service, United Methodist Women - the spirit and commitment remain the same. Fortunately we have in the Schofield Library Archives many of their records dating back as far as 1920. See the documentation of an extraordinary history at the UMW table in The Commons. You can see the UMW circle information on this week’s bulletin insert, and we invite all women to be a part of Central’s United Methodist Women! Please join us for snacks in Spears Fellowship Hall at 10:00 am for fellowship.
