Women's Small Groups
The Quilters welcome anyone with quilting experience to join them as this is not necessarily for beginners. The group finishes quilt tops for other people, and they donate the proceeds of sales to various charities. They meet in the quilting room on the 2nd floor (behind the Library and Creation room) on Wednesdays at 9:30 – 12:00 pm year-round.
Never Without a Friend is a lady’s friendship/fellowship group meets for dinner at different locally owned restaurants on the 3rd Thursday of the month. The ladies begin to arrive at the restaurant after 5:30pm and start getting caught up. We order dinner at 6:00pm and enjoy one another’s company till we’re ready to go. Occasionally during the summer we go on a little road trip and enjoy dinner at restaurants up to an hour away from Jackson. Some ladies get together outside our dinners, and we support one another through life’s ups and downs. We provide snacks after Sunday worship 6 times a year and often volunteer for various JFUMC projects. Never Without a Friend open to ladies from the church and community, and new friends are always welcome. Our dinners are announced in our newsletter, the bulletins, weekly announcements, and on the events page of our website.
The United Women in Faith (UWF) connects the women of the United Methodist Church with each congregation and all around the world. For over 150 years, the United Methodist Women have come together in study and service seeking to deepen their faith and strengthen the mission outreach of the United Methodist Church. Each congregation of the United Methodist Church has a unit of UMW.
Our local unit meets together on the first Thursday of each month from September to December and from February to June for lunch followed by an informative and entertaining program designed to help us know God better, learn more about the challenges faced in our world, and to show us how we can meet the needs of others, both locally and globally.
All women are invited to explore what UMW has to offer. You do not even have to be part of the United Methodist Church in order to join UMW. You are invited to connect with the United Methodist Women by contacting the church office. We look forward to including you in the ministries of The United Methodist Women.
The Guild is a women’s group that meets at the church on the first Thursday of the month from September through May at 12:00 pm for lunch and a speaker. There is a cost for the meal. Their special projects include providing Christmas cookies for senior citizens and May baskets.
