Faith Talks on Lent and Spiritual Disciplines

Join the Faith Talks podcast LIVE on February 15 at 2:00 p.m. ET.

Join host Jennifer R. Farmer for a Faith Talks segment coinciding with the Lenten season on Feb. 15 at 2:00 p.m. ET. She’ll interview Whitney R. Simpson and discuss her book, Holy Listening with Breath, Body, and the Spirit. Simpson’s book is a 40-day devotional written with Lent in mind. It includes daily prompts for lectio divina, breath prayer, simple yoga postures, essential oils, and journaling and reflection. It was created to engage the whole body on this 40-day Lenten journey with God. Register here for this Faith Talks episode.

The Kin-dom Is Among You: Drawing Closer to God and One Another

Mission u is a transformative educational program that encompasses both Bible-based curricula and events. All are welcome to engage with either or both components of Mission u.

Interested in deepening your faith in community? Gaining experience interpreting Scripture? Working toward healing for yourself, your community, and all of creation? Mission u is for you!

Each year, United Women in Faith develops three justice-focused Biblical curricula for adults, youth, and children, all on a common theme. In 2024, our theme is The Kin-dom Is Among You: Drawing Closer to God and One Another. In 2025, the theme will be Hope as Resurrection People. Our focus on developing three curricula around one common theme means that Mission u offers a unique opportunity for faith communities to create powerful intergenerational learning experiences.  For more information Mission u go to Mission u | United Women in Faith (uwfaith.org).

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
- soap
- deodorant
- toothpaste
- toothbrush
- hand sanitizer
- masks
- 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!

Click here to take action.

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]
