Women's Ministry: United Church Women
From the Lambeth United Church UCW – Picture our annual bazaar, if you will, and now try and picture it with social distancing. Hard isn’t it? To protect the usual throngs of people who file through our church on that day, we have made the difficult decision to cancel plans for the 2020 bazaar and hope to be back in 2021 – bigger and better. We’re asking your help to assist us in still making the financial contributions to both the church and donations to various charities for which we would normally use our bazaar profits. Think about the monies you normally spend on baking, crafting and the like plus the money you spend at the bazaar. If 100 LUC members (or families) contribute $100.00 we could have the $10,000.00 we need to maintain our charitable donations. If you would like to be part of this, contact the church office and Judy will direct you on how to make your donation*. As at October 6th our generous donors have contributed $8,097.50 – thank you so much. Remember, too, that these donations come with more than just our thanks – they come with a tax receipt!
*$100.00 too much? We are happy to accept whatever is comfortable for you.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
Our knitting group is continuing but from the comfort of our homes for the present.. We have a good supply of prayer shawls on hand right now but we are still getting together to work on other projects – perhaps a scarf for My Sisters Place or mittens for the Men’s Mission… Join us the third Saturday of each month between 9:30 and noon as soon as it is safe to meet again. All knitters welcome from beginner to expert!
A little history
Women within the United Church have been forming UCW groups since the organization was formally inaugurated on January 1st, 1962
Any woman who is willing to contribute to the work of the church may participate in United Church Women. A Life Membership pin and certificate are available to any member of the UCW whom a UCW group may wish to honour.
The very active units of the UCW meet regularly—-please see the Church Calendar for meeting dates and times…to resume when safe.
