United Methodist Women

GUMC-Wms-group-1.jpg

Our organization began 150 years ago, because the women of a church in Boston thought that the church was not doing mission work across the globe as fully as possible!

 

Our local unit of the United Methodist Women makes a pledge to the national United Methodist Women to join in the over $5,000,000 sent to our projects around the globe (yes, that is $5 million!)  Check this site if you are interested:

We also give donations to local agencies who are working for the needs of women, children and youth.

This year those agencies include the Food Bank of the Rockies, Growing Home, Jefferson County Domestic Violence Shelter, Kairos Prison Ministries, and Extended Hands of Hope.

 

If you wish to add to any of this mission work, please write a check to GSUMW (Good Shepherd United Methodist Women) and send it to our treasurer, Kathy Bollfrass, kgboll99@gmail.com

 

Our next meeting:

The next monthly Good Shepherd United Methodist Women's unit meeting will held on September 18th at noon at the Church. Using Dr Alice Mathew's book, A Woman God Can Use, we will do a study/discussion on Esther, a strong woman in the Old Testament. 

We would like to invite any woman who is interested in worldwide missions with a focus on the physical and spiritual well-being of women, children and youth to please join us with their own lunch that day.
