Why United Methodist Women?

Why, in this American society in which women are working actively toward equality in all walks of life, do we still need an organization such as United Methodist Women?

The answer is simple: To guide women along their faith journey, and to improve the lives of women, youths and children around the world, following the example of Jesus Christ.

"Why United Methodist Women?" will kick off the fall schedule for St. Stephen UMC's fledgling UMW unit meeting at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 7 at church. President Shirley Feldhaus will lead a devotional from "Psalms for Women." Newly appointed vice president for program, Cynthia Astle, will give a brief introduction to the nature and mission of United Methodist Women.

And with luck, the new UMW program books will be here, thanks to some extra effort by our church administrative assistant, Paula Humphreys. (Hooray for Paula!) Cost of each book is $11.25, and cash or checks made out to St. Stephen UMC, with "UMW Book" on the memo line, will be accepted.

Please bring a dish to share for luncheon and stay for the discussion. We anticipate a lively session!
