The Women's Ministry at Bethlehem is an active, mission focused group which is a part of the United Methodist Women of our denomination. The UMW Unit is made up of four circles that meet monthly for study, fellowship and to plan areas of service for the church, community and world.
Throughout the year, these women serve our church by providing flowers for the worship services, serving meals for the sick and bereaved and keeping our kitchen clean. They have several ongoing mission projects and are called upon often to help assist with mission needs.
The major mission fund raiser for the UMW is their annual Bazaar held in October. Each lady works tirelessly baking, crafting, canning and freezing to provide items for sale on this Saturday. This past Bazaar raised over $10,000 that will be used for local, national and world missions.
The UMW Unit meets every other month at 3 pm at the church. Next meeting is September 11, 2016.
Circle Meetings Are:
Busy Bees: 2nd Thursday at 7:00 pm
Helping Hands: 2nd Monday at 7:00 pm
Witness & Service Morning: 2nd Tuesday at 10:00 am
Willing Workers: 2nd Tuesday at 11:00 am
WOMEN'S BIBLE STUDIES:
Throughout the year, our women also meet in various Bible Studies. Women of all ages, from High School girls to seniors, meet to study God's Word and how to apply it to their own lives.
