United Women in Faith Spring Unit Meeting
Tue, Apr 12, 11:30 am - 1 pm, Coleman Family Hall
FUMCR United Women in Faith, formerly known as United Methodist Women (UMW), will gather for their Spring Unit Meeting. All women of the church are invited to attend, and guests are welcome!
Bring your own lunch. A light dessert and drinks will be provided.
Wendy Campbell of Lovers Lane United Women in Faith will share information about the rescue center being built in Kenya in memory of Jerri Savuto. Jerri and her husband, Bill, were missionaries whom FUMCR supported in the field. Although Jerri passed away several years ago, the impact she made on the women of Kenya is powerful. Jerri’s passion was to protect coming-of-age girls who are/were subjected to forced marriages and FGM (female genital mutilation). You will not want to miss this enlightening and challenging presentation.
