Our UMW unit is a ministry of love in action for All the women of our church. You do not have to be a church member to join our group. We are an inclusive group of women of ages and backgrounds who come together in a spirit of love and fellowship to Be The Hands and Feet of Christ. Our goal is to nurture our women and to offer opportunities for fellowship, spiritual growth and mission. If you have young children, we offer free childcare at Every event with a reservation.
Our mission opportunities include local projects such as Lunches of Love, BAMBI (Baby & Mother Bonding Initiative through TDCJ), Supply Our Students, All Hands Volunteers (local flood relief) and several human trafficking rescue and restoration organizations. Our international missions include Haiti, Uganda, and UMCOR, which is international. We raise thousands of dollars every year for these important projects And we also give generously to departments right here in our church.
We love to have fun as well! Our monthly Ladies Bunco Fellowship Night has been a Big Hit! We play on the 3rd Tuesday evening of the moth at 6:30 p.m. We serve a light dinner, dessert and play for prizes. There is also Lots of laughter! Profits go to local mission projects. Bunco is a great way to meet new women in our church. We always have visitors to our church come check us out because it is a fun and casual way to get to know people. During the summer and special occasions, we have C0-Ed Bunco and the men Love It! Mark your calendar and come roll with us!
And finally, communication is important in a church as large as ours. We publish a monthly newsletter called, The Messenger. It goes, via email, to every woman who is a member of Christ Church. However, we can put you on our email list if you are not currently a member of the church. You will see contact info for our board and we welcome your feedback, suggestions and prayers.
We are currently looking at ways to bring our groups together for quarterly events, such as luncheons or mission projects. It is most important that we nurture a "community of Christian women"!
We are always open to starting new groups! If you have an idea for a new group, please let us know! We are anxious to provide our women with options for fellowship and mission.
Currently, we have two interest groups: CHIA and Bunco Fellowship.
Christ's Hands in Action (C.H.I.A.)
The unit at Christ Church offers quarterly unit-wide meetings as well as an interest group called Christ's Hands in Action (C.H.I.A.). C.H.I.A. gathers on the second Monday of each month, at 10 am in Room 301, for hands-on mission projects and studies. All ladies are welcome to participate.
