United Methodist Women’s Retreat
Each year we gather together for a weekend where we learn new ways to pray, deepen our faith and strengthen our community of women.
If you’ve never attended one of our retreats, we encourage you to give it a try. The weekend offers a time to reflect and unwind and to get to know the other women in our three congregations. You need not be a member of the United Methodist Women or be pious nor certain of your beliefs. You need only to be female and curious about God. For more information, contact Suzanne Vieth.
Our annual UMW Bazaar is one of the most anticipated events of the year at Metropolitan. Learn more.
Great Day of Service
Each Spring, the United Methodist Women of Metropolitan Memorial sponsor a church-wide service day that includes a food drive, making sandwiches for delivery to the homeless, cooking dinners for Metro House and St. Luke’s Shelter, and a host of other service projects, such as assembling health kits for use in relief efforts and Bags of Grace for the homeless. Contact UMW Social Action Coordinator, Jeanie Mah.
To get involved, all you need to do is show up! Children, families, and youth are welcome. There are many tasks and activities to choose from. Leaders are also needed to organize and lead the individual projects, purchase supplies, plan refreshments, and deliver items at the end of the day.
Call To Prayer
Our annual Call to Prayer occurs during Lent and is a worship opportunity to reflect on and support the mission work that the UMW supports globally. Past Call to Prayer gatherings have benefitted retired missionaries and deaconesses, hospital construction and more.
