How does CCUMC United Methodist Women support the Vision?
The CCUMC United Methodist Women support a wide variety of missions and many of our activities are close to home.
As a group, we all gather together twice a year for a Dinner in the fall and a Mission Study/Coffee in the winter. Throughout the year, smaller groups gather in Circles and meet once a month. Each Circle has distinct missions and together we assist our church community to share God’s love by supporting each other through prayer and friendship.
We support annual fundraisers to financially support causes which impact women, children, youth, and food insecurity in our local community. Our annual Holiday Bazaar and Pecan Sales allow us to help fund outreach, feeding programs, and local ministries. These activities provide needed funds and also allow us to work side by side in fellowship and provide welcoming community events.
We volunteer and provide donations to local children and youth in a variety of ways. Tutors offer coaching and support at the Boys & Girls Club. We clothe needy children and assemble weekend food bags through our local schools. We donate beautiful Easter baskets and Christmas gifts through local charities including Gifts of Love.
We provide fellowship and support activities at local assisted living facilities to bring connection to residents who are limited in getting out into the community.
We provide strong support for various activities at Coronado Community UMC to provide a welcoming and safe environment for all.
