United Methodist Women


     The United Methodist Women/UMW met on September 11 with Taren Tripp of Hope Haven of Northeast Georgia as our guest speaker. She shared the many amazing ways that Hope Haven serves adults with developmental disabilities as well as hopes for more opportunities and services for these individuals in the future. Hope Haven believes in the uniqueness, worth, dignity, and right to self-determination of every individual.  We strive to prepare, empower, and support individuals with developmental disabilities and their families to participate fully in the community. Hope Haven is celebrating its 60th year in Athens! For more information about Hope Haven and its services, visit  They will be hosting their annual Threads of Hope fashion show on November 1 which is a  major fundraiser for them. 

     Please plan to join us on Sunday, October 28 right after the 11 am worship service for our Annual Baked Potato & Salad Bar! We plan to have a wide variety of salads along with all the fixings for baked potatoes-and dessert!-for you to enjoy. A minimum $5 donation per person to benefit our mission projects is requested and appreciated. 

     We are currently in the process of nominating our officers for next year. If you have a desire to serve as a UMW officer, please let Carol Hodges or Delores Wages know. We will have an officer installation ceremony at our November meeting. We are also looking forward to the Christmas season and the various service projects we support during the season. This would be a good time to check out the great ladies of UMW!

     Our October meeting will be Oct. 9th in the fellowship hall, all ladies are welcome.
