 Health-needs of women and children around the world will be the program topic at the United Methodist Women meeting on Saturday, November 18. All Asbury women are invited for a light breakfast at 9:00 a.m. and a discussion of ways to help address health- needs of vulnerable women and girls.

        In July 2011 we celebrated a rededication service for UMW.  The group meets on the third Saturday of each month at 9 am until 10:30.  Currently there are about 20 members.  Come join us!

The purpose of UMW  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.

Besides getting together each month for reflection and fellowship, we have initiated several projects including:

  • Joining other houses of worship in the area to assemble 200 school  kits that were distributed by UMCOR
  • Sponsoring an annual baby shower for the children  incarcerated with their mothers in the NY state prisons.
  • Hosting  the Holidays Artisan Fair.
  • Coordinating a ‘Love Luncheon ‘ in February [near Valentine’s day]
  • Providing partial scholarships to Asbury children attending Vacation Bible School and Volunteer Work programs.
  • Financially support UMW national and international mission projects that benefit women, youth and children.
