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 Faubion Women meets once a month. The first and second month of the quarter we meet on the 3rd Thursday at 10am. The last month of the quarter we usually meet on the last Saturday at 9am with breakfast and a program. We are active in supporting church activities, as well as various community groups and local charities. All women are welcome. There are no dues to belong.

This year we have chosen to make menstrual pads as our Mission Project. Do you know many girls and women miss school or work because they have to stay home during this time of their cycle. By giving them something simple as a menstrual pad they do not have to miss parts of their every day life.

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. 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, Love, inc., Northland Christmas Store, Northland Early Education Center, Operation Shoebox, PATCH, reStart, inc., Shepherd Center of Northland, Spofford House, and Synergy. Many thanks to your support of our sales so we may bless these charities with donations to further their missions.
