First UMC Gonzales

United Methodist Women

UMW is a community of servant women. We want all church women to have the opportunity to attend a monthly gathering. At our March meeting, we finalized plans to begin the new Night Circle in August 2017. Both circles will meet on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. The Day Circle will meet at 10 am and the Night Circle will meet at 6 pm. We hope the two meeting formats will allow participation by women who could not attend a day meeting. Please join us in fellowship and in services through missions.

A special "Thank you!" for everyone who attended our March meetings to hear Mrs. Ashleigh Tassin Fuller to speak on Human Trafficking. We had 34 people who attended the sessions. We decided to become an outreach to help the victims of human trafficking. We will be meeting in the near future with a representative from Healing Place Church in Baton Rouge who has an outreach program for victims.

The "Little Ones" Project is a local school project to share with God's children who are in need. The Pecan Grove Elementary School's guidance counselor will select 2 needy children from each gradeKindergarten-5th grade. The sponsor of each child will be doing Acts of Kindness during the school year fro the child. Special Thanks to Cathy Vittoria for seeing the need and seeking the UMW to help children in our community. She will be our representative in Pecan Grove Elementary School for the 2018-2019 school year. We appreciate you, Cathy!

On Thursday, May 19th the UMW will sponsor the Mother's Day Out Program, Muffins with Mom. We are excited about this opportunity to show our appreciation for the staff of our Mother's Day Out and the moms who have chosen our church's program!
