Upcoming UMW Partnership Events!
It’s that time of year again, when the leaves are starting to change and the weather is getting a little bit chillier. It also means that activities within the church are starting to pick back up and there are even more opportunities to get involved! Our United Methodist Women’s group has been a part of this launch of activities and has two fun partnership events coming up next month.
The first of these events is the “Fall Into Action” Women’s Retreat which is being hosted at Oakton United Methodist Church on November 3 from 9 AM to 2 PM. This retreat will be a time for reflection, thanksgiving, hope and personal growth. There will be interactive sessions, lunch and fellowship with other women as Dianne Tollier, an inspirational speaker, author and certified life coach, leads the retreat to help women of all ages renew and refocus. To register for this event, visit https://oumwfallintoaction.eventbrite.com, this registration includes continental breakfast and lunch. If you register by October 29, you will be entered into a drawing. Advance registration is $20 and at the door registration is $25. Child Care will also be available at $15 per child with advance registration required.
The second partnership event that our UMW group has coming up is “A Mini-Mission Encounter: Living as a Covenant Community.” This event is being hosted by the Arlington District UMW at Aldie United Methodist Church on Saturday, November 10 from 9 AM to 12 PM. About this event the Arlington UMW says: “Covenants are found in the Bible from when God created man until the last page of Revelation. This encounter examines major covenants and what they reveal about how God works with us, in us and through us.” The speaker for this Mini Mission encounter is the reverent Nancy Robinson who is a missionary with the General Board of Global Ministries serving as the Mission Advocate for the Southeast Jurisdiction. Light refreshments and coffee will be served.
Our United Methodist Women’s group would love to see you at any of these upcoming partnership events or future events hosted here at Sterling UMC. The Sterling UMW group meets on the first Monday of every month at 7 PM. To learn more about upcoming UMW events, click here.
