Central United Women IN FAITH
“We seek to connect and nurture women through Christian spiritual formation, leadership development, creative fellowship and education so that they can inspire, influence and impact local and global communities.”
We believe love in action can change the world.
2022-2023 Program Book: Mosaic of Faith--We are All Part of God's Story
We are all part of God's story! The 2022-23 Program Resource shows how we can answer our calling today as women of passion committed to helping women, children, and youth.
The programs are grounded in Mark 8:27–30 as an invitation to reclaim and explore our identity as children of God and as a community of women of faith. The monthly Bible studies, reflections, program activities, and weekly activities to do on your own between each program will help guide us through the year as we look at who we are in Christ and what that means for how we live in community as United Women in Faith members called to action in local and global communities.

MISSION u 2022 STUDY
Luke 13: A Transformative Biblical Curriculum for Adults, Youth and Children
In 2022, all three curricula (adults, youth, children) will be on the topic of Luke 13.
Beginning in 2022, we will introduce a new model of Mission u curricula. Instead of creating separate studies that examine spiritual growth, justice, and national and global social issues, we are integrating these commitments into one curriculum. This means there will be one curriculum for adults, one for youth and one for children.

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.

Tell Your Representative: Take Federal Action to Help End School Pushout!
Show your support for the federal Ending PUSHOUT Act! As United Women in Faith 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]
