Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors
ALL of our women's groups welcome newcomers, and all women who attend our church (not just OGUMC members) are welcome to participate. Check our WEEKLY SCHEDULE or CALENDAR web pages (also our Sunday bulletins and monthly Tower Signal newsletters) for meeting times of other groups whose participants tend to be primarily women (for example, our Quilters and our Book Club).
QUESTIONS? Questions about our United Methodist Women (UMW) activities may be directed to Donna Metcalf. Questions about our WINGS ("Women In God's Service") activities may be directed to Lydia Henry.
Please note that our UMW Susanna Wesley Circle takes a summer break; it doesn't meet in the months of July or August.
SATURDAY, MAY 13 • 8:30AM - 3:30PM
Location: Montavilla UMC (232 SE 80th Ave., Portland, OR 97215)
This year we're trying something new for our annual women's retreat: we've teamed with Montavilla UMC to co-host "The Pulse of Compassion: Loving God, Ourselves & Others". The planning committee invites all women to spend time together as a church as well as to mingle with other women across Portland! The flyer contains information about the program and the cost ($15, including lunch and supplies) plus a registration form that needs to be submitted via U.S. mail. The registration deadline is May 6th. There will also be a sign-up sheet for those interested in carpooling. We hope you will put this event on your calendars and plan to participate! Questions? Contact Lydia Henry. A RELATED REQUEST: One of the retreat activities will be to create a collage. We will need lots of pictures of people, places, animals, nature, etc., so we are collecting used magazines. If you can help, bring your magazines and leave them in the collection box labeled WINGS located in our Fellowship Hall. Thank you!
