Women of SUMC


UMW Logo Open to all women of the Church and community, the Sydenstricker UM Women offer many opportunities for mission support, service to others, small group spiritual growth and fellowship. All activities are publicized well in advance. Meeting schedules vary, so watch the bulletin, monthly Steeple and the website for dates and times. Women are invited to participate in the monthly general meeting, craft circle, and special called meetings. Participation is encouraged in such events as our annual Bazaar and Spring “Second Time Around Sale” which raise money for mission work and community ministries.

The UMW is a very active unit with several, on-going efforts. Our current projects and activities include: accepting cancelled stamps for UMCOR, cell phones for battered women, school supplies and health items for outreach projects, loose change for the World Thank Offering and pennies for the Least Coin Offering. We also collect Campbell soup labels which are contributed to our Church sponsored TOT Pre-School.

We also encourage our members to attend the Alexandria District UMW meetings such as: Mini School of Christian Missions, one day Spiritual Life Event, Ash Wednesday Service, as well as the Virginia Conference School of Christian Missions weekend or week long study; weekend Spiritual Life Retreat and the UMW Annual Meeting in Blackstone, VA. For additional information, please contact the Church as 703-451-8223.
