UMW Rummage Sale a success ...
Last year's spring rummage sale was a big success. Thank you to all who donated their used items. It took many hands to put together the rummage sale. All profits will go towards mission projects of United Methodist Women.

International UMW involvement – Missions
United Methodist Women are in mission with people on almost every continent and many islands of the world. Their giving – close to $20 million a year – provides food, shelter, education, employment, health care and human rights advocacy for those most oppressed and forgotten. Money for mission projects is distributed through an “appropriations” process by the elected directors of the division.
