More information about the UMW at FBS and Circle Meetings:
Who we are- The UMW has been in mission to women, children and youth across the world for more than 174 years. The entire program and organization of United Methodist Women focuses on mission. Here at First Broad Street we have approximately 155 members who support a budget of $14,765. Besides our portion which goes to our district, conference and national budgets, we contribute to Holston Home for Children, Camp Bays Mountain, and Child Center Teacher Scholarships. We provide a lunch for our staff, sponsor breakfast for our high school seniors, and give a “gift to mission” in their honor and for college graduates. UMW also provides a meal once a month for the Terrific Tuesdays program at Community UMC and encourages reading through the purchase of books for the reading program. We contribute to Jackson Elementary School through the collection of “Boxtops for Education," and hats, scarves and gloves at Christmas. Each month one of our 5 circles provides a dessert item for Safe House, Oasis and Hope Haven for Women, and we distribute the magazines collected to Holston Valley Hospital. We have two special offerings in addition to our annual budget each year – Prayer & Self Denial in March and World Thank in November. These offerings go to national for support of some of the many worldwide programs of United Methodist Women.
We encourage all women to become a member of one of our circles or just become a member at large to be part of this long-standing example of being a disciple of Jesus.
