United Methodist Women
Central United Methodist Women are Women United in Service, Fellowship and Spiritual Reflection -- a group of ordinary women doing extraordinary things. We emphasize mission in all that we do. Our activities range from local service to global concerns. At Central, we support our youth, assist with 'JOY Seniors' luncheons, and deliver 'Meals on Wheels'. We support groups in Florence such as House of Hope and the Pee Dee Coalition. The Wallace Family Life Center and Bethlehem Centers are state UMW missions. We also contribute to other ministries throughout the nation and world.

Central has several ministry areas that reach out to our church family and the community. These groups are our attempt to bring Christians together to share prayer, resources, and advice as we turn to God's Word for support and help in times of stress and crisis. These groups are led by those in our church family who have life experience in these areas.
