"Yet, O Lord, you are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand." -Isaiah 64:8
The women at Holland's have several opportunities to participate in Bible study, community outreach, missions, and Christian Fellowship by joining the UMW and/or one of their sponsored circles.
UMW is the core group of women at Holland's United Methodist Church. Our purpose is to further missions through participation in global ministries of the church. Any woman at Holland's can be a member of the UMW. For general information about the UMW, click here.
Through the monies raised by our annual fall craft sale and offerings, the Holland's UMW has been able to support many charitable organizations and missions, such as:
- Garner Area Ministries
- The Benevolent Fund at Holland's
- MERCI Center
- Haiti Missions
- Appalachain Service Project
- World Thanks Offering
Our Circles have sponsored pecan sales, golf tournaments, rummage sales, consignment sales, and an aerobathon as well as other activities to support additional missions, such as:
- Meals on Wheels
