United Methodist Women

We have active United Methodist Women (UMW) and United Methodist Men (UMM) units that welcome your participation. Both meet monthly and are involved in activities throughout the month and support local charities.

The UMM and UMW also coordinate and support each other. Both are wonderful small group opportunities to build meaningful relationships in Christian love and commitment.

The Vision of United Methodist Women

Turning faith, hope and love into action on behalf of women, children and youth around the world.

Active Church Wide Initiatives

Throughout the year the UMW coordinates several church wide initiatives. At this time there are two such initiatives underway for October and November:  

 

Staffing Brunswick County Clothes Closet

Every Saturday in October 9:00 am -1:00 pm  UMW provide assistance with the clothing closet. Contact Debbie Dowling if you can serve.

Baby Shower Collection to Support Brunswick County Social Services

The Prospect United Methodist Women invite you to a Baby Shower on October 28th at 7:00 p.m. for expectant mothers in need as identified by Brunswick Dept. of Social Services. Gifts must be new and unwrapped.  If you wish to donate in advance, collection boxes have been placed in the Narthex and fellowship hall.  Collection will end on October 28th. Special needs include: baby oil, children’s books, any size diapers, baby soaps, old fashion rattles and activity toys. Please avoid NB-3 month old size as most babies are born to large for this size.  Gift cards are welcome!!

Samaritans Purse Christmas Shoe Box Collection

About Samaritan's Purse: "After sharing the story of the Good Samaritan, Jesus said “Go and do likewise.” That is the mission of Samaritan's Purse—to follow the example of Christ by helping those in need and proclaiming the hope of the Gospel."

Our boxes are due by 11/18. Please bring them to church. For more information and instruction on how to prepare the boxes, please visit https://www.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/pack-a-shoe-box/
