United Methodist Women
Greetings from your Leadership Team. We are sharing in the church's 150th Celebration, which began with UMW Sunday on September 22, 2019. This will continue until Rally Sunday in September, 2020. We will continue to share some fun items from "Then and Now" for Greeley United Methodist Women. We ask for your continued prayers for our leaders as the changes continue for the churches in our conference and our women's organization.
Pennies for Mission 2019
A project sponsored by Greeley United Methodist Women
Just over 150 years ago, a few women organized for mission as the Women’s Foreign Missionary Society - they sent their first missionaries into the field in India within the first year on the giving theme of two cents a week and prayer pledged by those early members. The need is still present in the world, except things cost more. Your Greeley leadership team has asked you to help us go the “second mile” in giving “One Cent a Day and Prayer” toward our mission giving for the last 5 years. We will continue this project until April 26, 2020, when we celebrate our church’s 150th Anniversary.
We have sent portions of your generous support to the District treasurer to include in the pledges made to the Conference. Other portions have been used locally to support Envision, Life Stories (formerly “A Kid’s Place”), Transitional House, and A Woman’s Place as well as funding a continued scholarship at Aims.
Other amounts support Kairos (a prison ministry) and Sewing for Service. Please check our current display for copies of Response magazine and maps showing where funds are used by the worldwide organization of United Methodist Women.
Sewing for Service
Sewing for Service meets every Wednesday afternoon in fellowship hall; starting at 1:30 until snacks are served at 3:30. Come join us.
We specialize in making quilts of all sizes – from crib to queen size – and all colors. Many are donated each year. Quilts are also available for sale at reasonable prices.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
Do you know someone who could use a shawl, scarf, port pillow, or “comfort” square? A reminder that this ministry is still alive and well. We have a nice choice available including a couple of quilted shawls. Just contact the church office at 353-5522 or Raylene Shively at firstname.lastname@example.org or 576-0868.
