Ladies Out to Lunch

The "Ladies Out to Lunch"  meets on the 3rd Thursdays of the month at Friendlys' Restaurant in the Wetherfield  Shopping Center.

This is a great time to get to know one another, engage in good conversation, and share in a meal, (and no one has to cook.)  The time is 11:30 a.m.  R.S.V.P Jan Ironside in the church office.


Book Club for Women
bookcase
Do you love to read? If so, you are cordially invited to join a lively group of women (some who are members of our church and some who are not) who share an interest in reading and meeting regularly to discuss a wide variety of books.

Our selected books are as varied as the interests of our members. We read bestsellers and classics, fiction and non-fiction, books with contemporary settings and historical settings, memoirs, stories fo faith, and books which explore different cultures. Most of the books we choose to read are available through the public library system.

We meet at a book club member's home, approximately once a month on a Sunday evening for food, fellowship, and to discuss the selected book.

Please bring an appetizer or dessert to share at each meeting.

For additional information , or to be placed on the email list to receive announcements of future book selections and meeting dates, please contact Nancy Storms at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or Amy Weed at (860) 721-7592.
United Methodist Women is an organization of our church, which brings together women of all ages for times of fellowship, worship and mission.

All women in a United Methodist Church are members of the local UMW.


Creative Pastimes Ministry

The 'Creative Pastimes Ministry' is open to everyone who enjoys a craft or pastime such as knitting, crocheting, rug hooking, needlepoint, scrap-booking, painting, drawing or stamping.  We work on any project we choose, whether it is a personal project or an outreach project.   Outreach projects include: prayer shawls/blankets, newborn hats, warm adult knit hats, dolls for Haiti and warm adult knit hats for area homeless shelters and faraway seamen through the Seamen's Church Institute. Patterns are available for all these projects.  Beginner knitters are always welcome to join the group. There are extra needles and yarn available and we would love to teach you how to knit.  In 2014, 14 prayer shawls, 120 newborn hats, 5 baby blankets, 71 adult hats and 91 washcloths
Prayer shawls/blankets are made with open hands and hearts to be freely given to others as a gesture of compassion and peace. Please contact Pastor Hahn, or our older adult minister, Jan Ironside if you know someone who would appreciate being wrapped in the warmth and prayers of a prayer shawl.   Newborn hats are donated to Hartford Hospital or taken to Haiti by a mission team.  New babies at WUMC and our preschool receive a baby blanket.  Adult hats are taken, with toiletries, to 'Loaves and Fishes' every January.  Our newest project is knitting cotton washclothes, to be given with soap, for our mission project in Haiti.

Meetings begin with a group prayer for the recipients of our projects, be they strangers, acquaintances, family or friends.  Whenever one of us works on a project for another, at home or elsewhere, we strive to start first with prayer.  If you are unable to join us, patterns are available for independent work. We are grateful to friends who are unable to meet with us who also create these gifts of love and ship them to us, many from out of state.  Donations of yarn are appreciated.

The 'Creative Pastimes Ministry' meets on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Thursdays of each month  from 1 - 3 PM  in the Fireside Room.
