What do United Methodist Women do? Members of United Methodist Women (UMW) are active in their churches and the world around them in all kinds of ways. You will find members serving, teaching, sharing, and advocating on behalf of women, children and youth around the world. United Methodist Women members are committed to spiritual growth, giving to mission, social justice and living out their faith.
Before the Pandemic, our UMW met regularly (usually the last Monday evening each month) for prayer, study, social action and mission engagement, and we also get together just to have fun! We support several local ministries through the proceeds from our annual fundraisers. Among those we support regularly are Gateway-Longview, Beechwood/Blocher Homes, Niagara Frontier City Ministries, Seneca Street United Methodist Church and Central City Café at Durham AME Zion Church in Buffalo. All women of Asbury United Methodist Church and friends are invited to attend monthly meetings and to participate in our programs.
Our meetings are on hold due to the pandemic but we have continued our mission work. Winter coats, hat, gloves and scarves were delivered to Seneca St UMC and Hope house as well as food donations to Seneca St UMC, Hope House and Friends of the Night. We also donated food to our Blessing Box and the other Blessing Boxes in North Tonawanda and Weinberg Campus Food Pantry.
In our latest project we filled 23 donated purses with personal care items and hats, scarves and gloves.
President, Asbury UMW
