Purpose: “To unite women of the congregation for the total mission of the Church, and to provide a medium through which we may express our loyalty and devotion to Jesus Christ in Christian witness, study, fellowship and service”.
Ladies within our congregation meet on the third Tuesday evening of each month. Ladies in the group take turns organizing a program and devotion for the month, inspired by the season, scripture reading, or an area of special interest / concern. All ladies of the congregation are welcome to attend any of our meetings and activities for fellowship and fun.
The ladies supply and serve an Easter lunch to High Horizons (a group of Handicapped Adults), hold a Spring Plant Sale / White Elephant Sale, and a Christmas Bake and Craft Bazaar, with the men and women participating together to make this event such a huge success. The proceeds from these endeavours go to outreach programs such as M & S, Gloucester Emergency Food Cupboard, Ottawa Mission, Ottawa Innercity Ministries, Laundry Coop, Cornerstone Housing for Women, just to name a few. We were also in a financial position to assist our own congregation when funds were needed. The ladies organize funeral receptions, belong to the Prayer Group, the Flower Committee, the Pen-Pal Program, sing in the choir, and help with decorating the church for special occasions. We have the privilege of meeting and sharing with other UCW groups at fellowship days held at United Churches in the Ottawa area.
We are truly blessed with all of the things that God has provided, and will continue to fulfill our U.C.W. Purpose in the years to come with love and faith.
