Grace United Methodist Women serve the world by donating money to our missionaries; making dresses for Dress a Girl around the World, filling flood buckets, donating goods (soap, wash cloths, towels and fabric) for Days for Girls, donating to our local Domestic Violence Women's Shelter in Washington PA and the Washington City Mission, as well as helping our own Grace Church community. We are *Women of Action*.
Grace United Methodist Women meet on the Second Thursday of the Month in the Newkirk Room of 1 pm. We have a light snack and conduct our meetings by having devotions, reading from the Response Magazine and/or having a program from the UMW program book or guest speaker. At the end of the meeting we ask for prayer concerns, pray over the prayer concerns and conclude by reciting the UMW Benediction...
May the Grace of Christ our Savior and the Father's boundless love, with the Holy Spirit's favor, rest upon us from above. Thus may we abide in union with each other and the Lord, and possess, in sweet Communion, joys which Earth cannot afford. AMEN.
