Fall 2020 Rummage Sale

Thank you to all of the members who helped with the Fall Rummage sale that ran for two weeks in October 2020.  Since we had not had our Spring Rummage Sale due to Covid, this was a huge undertaking and could out have been accomplished without everyone’s help.  We are so blessed.

2020 Annual Christmas Cookie Sale – cancelled

The UMW have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Christmas Cookie Sale due to the increase in Covid cases in our community.  We will be making some cookies to distribute to shut-ins, etc.  If you would like to help, please contact one of the UMW Officers, Janie Reeder, Elsie Dedrick, Carole Nary or Nancy Schrader.

Wishing you all a Blessed Christmas and Happy Holiday Season!


Rebecca Ruth Circle Meetings:

The next Rebecca Ruth Meeting will be held in March 2021.  We have decided to discontinue meetings until then due to the uptick in the number of Covid cases in our area.  At this point we plan to resume our regular monthly UMW meetings on Thursday, March 11, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. in the church lounge. We plan to hold these meetings the second Thursday of each month at 10:00am in the lounge and invite you to join us for prayer, fellowship, and mission purpose.

The women in this fellowship meet to develop a deeper connection to Christ and to embody the work of the Lord through raising funds that find their way to help the people of God, here in our community and beyond the borders of Newark. You are most welcome to join us.


(On hold due to COVID-19)

The crafters group has resumed weekly meetings on Tuesday afternoons from 1pm to 3pm.  Please come join us for fun and fellowship.

December 14, 2019, Annual Cookie Sale was a huge success.  Thank you to the many volunteer bakers and workers, and to the community for supporting this annual event.  Here are a few pictures:

April 11-13, 2019 Rummage Sale:  A heartfelt thanks to all those who helped with the Rummage Sale, and to our many wonderful customers.  The sale was a great success, even with the limited parking due to ongoing Main Street Construction.

2018 Annual Christmas Cookie Sale:  Thank you to everyone who baked, decorated, helped with box building, setup and filling trays, helped at the cookie sale on Dec. 15, and to our wonderful community who visited us and made our cookie sale a huge success.  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

2018 UMW Christmas Luncheon:

A heartfelt Thank You to Pastor Yang for hosting the annual UMW Christmas luncheon at the Parsonage on Thursday, December 6th.  We enjoyed fellowship, a delicious dish-to-pass lunch (like only Methodist women can do), and a fun Secret Santa gift exchange.  Below are some pictures from the event.  We wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and many blessings in the New Year!!!
