Women at Foothills UMC

By participating in UMW activities at FUMC, the ladies of our church get to share their interests, beliefs, and experiences with one another, allowing each of us to continue on our own personal journeys knowing we have sisters to support us and encourage us along the way.

The women in our church are out in our communities almost everyday of the week helping others; counseling those in need at the HELP house, preparing meals at Upper Room, providing gifts for families that are unable to do so, giving cookies to Juvenile Hall, just to name of few ways we minister to our local community.  

See below for specific programs.
