Women of Faith Bible Study
Women gather for small group study and fellowship on Tuesday nights from 6:45-7:45 PM. We will take a break the week of Thanksgiving and Christmas and New Year’s weeks.
Titles for fall 2018 include Cheap Grace/Costly Grace – Bonhoeffer, James 2:14-26 Active Faith and a video by Max Lucado.
Past titles include “Invitations of Jesus” by Trevor Hudson, “Praying in the Messiness of Life” by Linda Douty, “When You Come Unglued…Stick Close to God” by Patricia Wilson, “Spiritual Friends” by L’Engle and Shaw, and “Sacred Journeys” by Jan Richardson.
The groups are growing and always welcoming new friends, so join us!
Annual Women’s Retreat
Each fall, the women of Lovely Lane gather at a location away from the church to study, pray, worship and share in fellowship. Some retreats are only for a day and in town, other years overnight trips take place not far away.
United Methodist Women (UMW)
Lovely Lane’s UMW is open to all women of Lovely Lane and provides an opportunity for women of all ages to grow spiritually in a loving and caring fellowship. They have a variety of programs and events that take place throughout the year.
A UMW Bible Study is held on Tuesdays @ 9:30 AM at the church.
Monthly UMW meetings are held on the 2nd Thursday at 1:00 PM and include lunch and a program on a variety of topics.
A major component of our organization is to be a caring, supportive fellowship. As United Methodist Women, we are committed to our PURPOSE* and would like to enlarge our circle of friends. Just as Lovely Lane is growing and changing, Lovely Lane’s UMW would like to grow and change also. We would like to form new subgroups or circles where women with shared interests, such as busy working women or young mothers, might come together in Christian fellowship. The formats for these groups may be as varied as the women participating in them. Times, dates, and meeting places may be arranged for the convenience of each group.
(*The Purpose of United Methodist Women is to know God and to 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.)
