On-Going Opportunities


United Methodist Women (UMW)

We are 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.


We meet at 10:00 AM, the second Saturday of every month in the church fellowship hall. During the winter months, UMW will not meet on a regular schedule.  Meetings resume in April. 


Join us for mission projects, mission education opportunities, spiritual growth retreats, and Christian fellowship.

The ACMN facilitates a year-round program providing 200+ backpacks and bags of food each week during the school year to all nine schools in Avery County.


During the Summer months, the program provides bags of food to at-risk children during Summer School and at the YMCA's WOW program.    Learn More  Here
