Glen Mar has started up a chapter of the United Methodist Women, the largest denominational faith organization for women with approximately 800,000 members whose mission is fostering spiritual growth, developing leaders and advocating for justice.

Meetings

We held our first monthly meeting in January. We generally meet the third Tuesday of each month (1:00 pm and 7:00 pm). This group is open to all women interested in working with the United Methodist Women in 2019. Choose which meeting works best for your schedule. Check the Current Happenings page for meeting notices.

Upcoming Events: Baby Shower and Fundraiser: May 4, 2-4 p.m.

Our first local mission project will be to sponsor a church-wide baby shower to benefit the Columbia Pregnancy Center on May 4, from 2-4 p.m., in Glen Mar's Youth Lounge. Download the flyer. To learn more about the work done at Columbia Pregnancy Center, view our video.
