UNITED CHURCH WOMEN'S GROUPS
To unite women of the congregation for the total mission of the church and to provide a medium through which they may express their loyalty and devotion to Jesus Christ in Christian witness, study, fellowship and service.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
The last Wednesday of the month (except July & August), a number of ladies gather at Eady United at 12:30pm, to knit/crochet Prayer Shawls and Handfuls of Hope. They are given to those who are ill, grieving, or for congratulatory occasions such as baptism, confirmation, etc. The Handfuls of Hope are given to those who would prefer a smaller item. We would be happy to have you join our group. If you know someone who would benefit from either a shawl or Handful of Hope, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Coldwater UCW meet on Monday mornings every other month.
The members of the United Church Women from the Wesley (Eady) and Coldwater United Churches are the proud successors of the original women's church groups that were formed in the late 1800s.
The first church women's groups were the Women's Association of the Ladies Aid, depending upon which Methodist church they belonged to, and the Woman's Missionary Society. These women were members of the original Methodist churches which became part of the greater United Church organization.
In 1962, the original Woman's Association, the Ladies Aid, and the Woman's Missionary Society were combined together under one common title of the United Church Women.
