On October 13 and 14 KUMC is celebrating the organization of United Methodist Women along with thousands of Methodist congregations around the world. UMW is the largest faith organization for women in the world with approximately 800,000 members. We raise nearly $20 million dollars each year for programs and projects related to women, children and youth in the United States and in more than 100 countries.
You, as a congregation, have generously participated in our mission by supporting our UMCOR relief kit projects, our Pocket Change collections, and Sharing the Joy, our alternative gift-giving event each November. Over the past eight years you have contributed over $100,000. We thank you so much for this support.
Currently we have five circles here at Keller UMC. Besides promoting congregational projects, each circle selects its own mission projects. We select these projects based on the needs we see in our community and around the world using our interests and talents.
We would like to invite all women of our congregation to become involved in United Methodist Women. Visit us at the Welcome Desk October 13 and 14 to find out more about UMW. You can also visit us on Facebook (Keller UMC UMW).
UMW provides the women of our church the opportunity to come together for study, worship, support and service. We have a place for you. Come join us! Imagine the difference you could make!
