United Methodist Women Program Book 2020-2021
Knitted Together for God's Good Work explores how we as children of God are joined and linked together into the whole body of Christ. Even at times when social distancing or other obstacles may keep us physically apart, we are knit together in community to transform the world.
CENTRAL UMW SEEKS FUNDS

Central's UMW invites your financial support for a mission project close to home. The Central UMW Unit is raising funds to purchase an upright freezer for the church's Food Pantry. The estimated cost is $1,200. All donations are welcomed!
Please make checks payable to Central United Methodist Women. Checks may be dropped off at the church or mailed to UMW Treasurer, Sherole Thrash.
Deadline for contributions is June 15, 2021. Any remaining funds will be used for kits distributed by the Monday Morning Ministry. We hope that you will support us in this effort to bless our community because we are all "Knitted Together for God's Good Work!"

Hygiene Kits for central's monday morning ministry
UMW continues to expand concepts of mission through our participation in the global ministries of the church and now in our unique surrounding communities. Beginning in April, we joined with the Monday Morning Ministry to provide hygiene kits for our unhoused neighbors on a continuous basis.
Kits should include:
- face towel
- hand sanitizer
- one-gallon "ziplock" bag.
Other items may be added, but all must be able to fit in the one-gallon bag. Please specify on the outside of the kit "Men" or "Women."
The kits may be dropped off at the church during operational hours or by contacting Julie Gordon for additional drop off times.
All support is welcomed in the Kingdom of God! Please join us in donating kits.

Show your support for the federal Ending PUSHOUT Act! As United Methodist Women members and friends, we are called to do all we can to interrupt the school-to-prison pipeline. Children of color, especially, are far too often targets of broken and biased systems. We know that racial disparities are rampant, with Black girls about six times as likely to be suspended as white girls. [Learn more]
