United Methodist Women
Please join us on April 12th at 11:30 am for lunch and to hear our guest speaker, Cheri, from Habitat for Humanity. She has many blessings to tell us about. This is a different time than what is in our Year Book. We are changing it for April to accommodate our speaker. Hope to see you there!
Pennies for Mission 2018
The leadership team for Greeley United Methodist Women would like to thank all who continue to support our "pennies" project. We will continue to collect pennies each year until United Methodist Women and Greeley UMW have celebrated 150 years in service.
These funds help empower and improve the lives of women, youth and children in the United States and around the world. About 70 percent of Mission Giving funds from members go to programs and projects supporting women, children and youth. Around 20-30 percent stays with the local, district, and conference organizations of United Methodist Women for local mission. Only 9 percent covers administrative costs.
We thank you for your continued support.
Save those pennies!
2018 Spiritual Life Retreat
We would like to encourage our attendance at the 2018 Spiritual Life Retreat April 27-29 at YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park. This will be the last retreat in Estes Park as it will be moving in 2019 to Colorado Springs. The theme is Spiritual Rhythm led by Sally Vonner, Assistant General Secretary for the Membership and Leadership Development for United Method Women. We will be experiencing Spiritual Rhythms, discovering the high times and working through the times when we are feeling less connected with God. Sally is a passionate spiritual leader who will guide us in a renewal of our spiritual journey.
Registrations are due March 21 to get the best registration rate. Additional information is available at RMCUMW.org. Links to the registration forms are shown below:
The Forget-me-not Ministry was organized to keep in touch with our members who can no longer meet with us regularly. Volunteers do this by making personal visits, sending cards and or placing a phone call. We meet monthly on the first Sunday of every month at 9:15 AM. Something new this year is “phone-buddy” which is someone who can call and check in on members who are not yet ready to leave their homes and are still able to care for themselves unless something unusual happens. Mary Etta Moore and Raylene Schively head up this ministry.
Sewing for Service
Every Wednesday afternoon a group of women meet in Fellowship Hall to make quilts. There are several steps in the quilt-making process: designing the top, layering the top, bottom and batting (padding) together, sewing around the outside, turning the quilt, stitching the edges, tying the knots. In 2017 Sewing for Service made and donated 259 quilts to veterans, Transitional House, Department of Social Services, children in new Habitat for Humanity homes, and a Woman’s Place.
New stitchers, designers, quilt-turners, and knot-tiers are always welcome! Please join us on Wednesdays! Men are welcome, too. It is a fabulous time of sewing, food and fellowship
Sewing for Service meets every Wednesday from 1:00 to 4:30 pm.
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 email@example.com or 576-0868.
