Update: UMW Bazaar and Craft Fair

After three months of discussion and prayerful consideration, CUMW's Board voted to cancel plans for the 2020 Holiday Bazaar and Craft Fair due to the uncertainty of the pandemic spread, restrictions, in-person worship and church events. As currently done, social distancing would be almost impossible.  It was important to let potential vendors know as they plan months in advance.  We were also reluctant to request Silent Auction donations from businesses that have been closed for months.  It was not an easy decision.

We do plan to sell 2020 White House Ornaments and hope to have several small events as circumstances allow.

The United Methodist Women (UMW) is an organized community of women whose purpose is to know God and experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative, supportive fellowship and to expand concepts of mission. The UMW has a variety of opportunities for fellowship. Circles meet in the morning, the evenings and all meet once a month, September through June. There’s a circle for women of all ages! If you are unable to commit to a monthly meeting, the UMW sponsors three unit events each year. Check the UMW bulletin board at the church to find detailed information about individual groups and meeting times. Join anytime during the year.

UMW Circles (Fellowship Groups)

A wonderful way to meet other women and make friends is to join one of Centreville’s three UMW Circles or be a Member At-Large. The circles are open to new members throughout the year and all members participate in a wide range of activities and strive to bring women in the church closer to one another.
