First UMC Gonzales

United Methodist Women

UMW will NOT have any Day or Night Circle meetings in June or July. Next meeting will be AUGUST 14th.

UMW voted to give a gift to mission in honor of Ruth Bailey. We want to recognize Ruth for being one of our longest active members. As we reflected on Mother's Day being a time to honor the women in our lives who have helped us in our spiritual journey we want to thank Ruth for giving that guidance and being a nurturing "mother" to so many people in our church and community.
