The United Methodist Women is an active group that meets on the second Monday of each month, excluding January
and August, at 11 a.m. At times the group meets in members' homes, often in the Wesley Room of the church, and
occasionally at a restaurant.
Each get together includes lunch as a group. Most often, attendees bring their own sandwiches and hostesses provide
coffee, tea and dessert. A long table is set and decorated to make each luncheon an event. At times everyone brings a
dish to pass, perhaps as a picnic or as a meal at someone's home.
A program is presented at every UMW meeting, and although topics vary widely, each program leaves one with food
for thought. Topics covered in the past have included prayer, human trafficking, reports on retreats and district
meetings, and the stories behind favorite hymns. Every year one program is the assembly of kits for the United
Methodist Committee on Relief and another involves the creation of harvest baskets to be delivered to church
members who are not as mobile as they used to be. Still other programs include opportunities to reminisce and
reflect. Games and fun often play an important part in fellowship.
There is also business to be conducted, as the UMW ladies are active in local and global missions. They create kits for
UMCOR, support missionaries and non-profits, provide scholarships and contribute toward church activities such as
Sunday school and youth group. They co-host the church's yearly family picnic and sometimes offer adult fellowship
activities such as pizza parties at a local restaurant. They also plan evening activities just for women, and send cards
and flowers to ailing church members.
The UMW has invested in a small library of books on Christian topics, such as spiritual leadership, prayer, social
issues, and nurturing for community. All church members are invited to sign out and read books.
In times of need, the UMW provides refreshments after funerals and helps support the church's weekly coffee hour.
Funds are provided by the group's busy hands: The UMW hosts two bake sales and a Brooks Barbecue each year.
This UMW unit has been recognized as a five star unit by the Catskill-Hudson District annually for the past
Anyone interested in the group's current activities may check the bulletin board in the Wesley Room of the church or
contact any UMW member. The current officers of UMW are: Jane Scrafford, president; Julie Carney,
vice-president; Carolyn Savery, secretary; and Mary Bear, treasurer.

Mens fellowship is a group of men of all ages and backgrounds, who wish to share some time with their church
community. We host a gathering called Potluck Parables on the third Saturday of every month at 6:30 pm in the
Carney Center. This is an event open to the whole church and the community. Everyone brings a dish to pass, we share
in fellowship during a potluck dinner, and Pastor Dale leads a lesson on one of the parables of Jesus following the meal.
We also meet at other times as friends, for fellowship, networking, and inspiration. We discuss ways that we can
contribute to the needs of our church family, our church sanctuary, and our surrounding community.
Mens fellowship provides a platform for service to others thru our various fund raising projects as well as work details
for church maintenance projects. Its more than just a platform for service, we also provide great Christian fellowship
opportunities, like camping and fishing trips. We welcome men of all ages and backgrounds, who wish to share some of
the fun, and work experience with other men from our church family. So come join us, we need u to make us complete.
This group meets on Wednesday mornings at 9 am for a wonderful time of fellowship and scripture study, led by Pastor
Dale. The group will begin meeting Wednesday 9/13/2017, and will meet weekly throughout the year at the Elliott
House meeting room.
