United Methodist Women
United Methodist Women met January 6th. Frankie Harris led our Call to Prayer and Self Denial Program: “Raise Your Light: Taking the Unexpected Path.” We were asked to identify someone or a scripture that continues to be a light on our paths. The scripture was read about King Herod ordering the Magi to go find Jesus and to let him know the child’s location. Upon leaving their gifts, they returned home “by another road” because of the star shining over Jesus’s birthplace revealing Herod’s plans that were in contrast to their beliefs. This story gives us as United Methodist Women a revelation about how we are called to respond in the face of injustice.
Cards were signed for ill members. Thank you notes were read from recipients to whom we gave gifts to in 2019.The February meeting will be led by Pastor Wade Powell on the Gospel of Mark and Radical Discipleship.
The organized unit of United Methodist Women shall be a community of women whose purpose is to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative, supportive fellowship and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.
The emblem for UMW is the the same as that used by Women’s societies and Wesleyan Service guilds during the past quadrennium. It affirms our continuity as women organized for mission, even as its symbolism affirms our newness and renewal.
The emblem combines ancient symbols of the church dating back to the days of Christ and Pentecost. The cross and a flame symbolizing the Holy Spirit evoke images of sacrifice, witness, and service.
“I now remind you to stir into flame the gift of God which is within you…” -II Timothy 1: 16
