There are many opportunities…from large groups to small gatherings… for women of the church to pool their talents and interests in “fellowship with a purpose.”
Some activities of the Mountain View UMC Women include:
Angels’ Attic Craft Sale
Meeting the second and fourth Mondays— February through October— talented women crafters prepare handmade items for a huge annual sale in October with many items perfect for the upcoming holidays. From large items like quilts to small home decor pieces, there’s something for every home and every budget. Women participate in all capacities. For those who feel they are not gifted creatively, helping hands are appreciated for the myriad of tasks needed to produce items for sale as well as organize, set up and manage the sale itself.
Profits from the handmade items and home baked goods offered at the sale are used to help fund needs that the church budget just cannot accommodate. In the past, Angel’s Attic has helped fund: paving the parking lot, purchase of special hymnals and sound equipment for Worship, upgrades for the kitchen and the heating/cooling system, new carpeting, and so very much more.
Smaller groups meet every few months for women to engage in more specific learning and mission projects in the company of others with a like mind in Christian living and sharing.
These sessions may focus on a special topic of general interest or a single project, e.g., providing pillows for hospital patients, the study of birds or planting houseplants for the shut ins.
“Strength and dignity are her clothing and she
laughs at the times to come.”
