Childcare is available upon request (the children will have a tea party too!) Let Jamie Jones know if you would like childcare: firstname.lastname@example.org
Saturday, September 23, 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. (room TBD)
United Women in Faith seeks 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. Formerly known as United Methodist Women (starting in the 1860’s), this group has changed the name to be more inclusive.
Our focus is on education and mission, including a priority towards helping women, children and families. All monies raised throughout the year go to local and global missions.
Here at First UMC, we present High School Senior Scholarships to the graduates every June and we contribute to the annual fundraising for the Youth Service Project. Through the years we have supported ministries including Angel Tree, Messy Church, Step Up on Second Street and the Westside Food Bank, The People Concern, Children, Youth, Family Collaborative, The Wesley Foundation serving UCLA, and the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR).
We welcome your involvement in any and all ways, in person and in prayer.
