The purpose of UMW shall be a community of women whose purpose is to know God and experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative, supportive fellowship and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church. The Lydia Circle is usually meets together at Johnson Memorial on the third Thursday of each month at 10:30 a.m. ; these meetings are currently on pause.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
The Prayer Shawl Ministry at JMUMC has been quite active. The purpose of the Prayer Shawl group is to knit or crochet prayer shawls while praying for the person who will receive it. Our group has been supplying the Hospice House of Huntington with shawls for the patients there. They have been well received and give great comfort. We have also been making shawls for our shut-ins, college students, military personnel, and others in need in our congregation. Our motto is “Making a difference, stitch by stitch.” If you are interested in joining us, call Melanie or the church office.
