Flame and Cross

Faubion United Methodist Church

Open Minds, Open Hearts, Open Doors

Gladstone's First Congregation Serving Our Community Since 1837


United Methodist WomenThe United Methodist Women's group is divided into two groups called "Circles". The Rebekah Circle meets at 6:30 PM on the first Monday of the month in the Fellowship Hall with a Christmas outing in December. The Martha/Esther circle meets on the third Thursday of each month at 10:00 AM in the Fellowship Hall. Both Circles meet together on a quarterly basis for a breakfast meeting which features a special program or speaker. The circles are active in supporting church activities, as well as various community groups including Synergy House, local nursing homes and food pantries. All women are welcome.

Do you ever wonder where the money goes that the UMW makes from the 3 sales they have every year? Besides making purchases for the kitchen such as appliances, utensils, etc. we also assist the church with major purchases such as the recent purchase of new chairs for the Fellowship Hall. The majority of the money made goes to various charities such as: Assistance League (Operation School Bell), Baby Grace, Church Women United, Clay County Clothes Closet, Della Lamb, Festival of Sharing, Harvesters, Least Coin, Love, inc., Northland Christmas Store, Northland Early Education Center, Operation Shoebox, PATCH, reStart, inc., Shepherd Center of Northland, Spofford House, Synergy, and we also send money to the District. Many thanks to your support of our sales so we may bless these charities with donations to further their missions.
