UMW Days for Girls

The St. James United Methodist Women will be holding workshops on Saturdays, February 10th and 24th from 9am to noon in Room 21 to sew and prepare kits for our Days for Girls Project. Sewers and non-sewers needed. We have several projects planned. If you have a sewing machine feel free to bring it to the workshop. We have requests from several of our Mission Teams for bags to take into the mission field this year, so we would like to get started on completing as many bags as possible this year.

If you have questions please contact Tammy Stephenson at 327-0599 or


UMW Collection Items

The UMW is very appreciative of the soup labels collected the past few years, but as of right now we will no longer be collecting them. We will continue to collect the BOX TOPS for EDUCATION for the local schools, as well as eye glasses for the Lions Club. These items may be left in the Parlor.
If you give the box tops directly to a school, please submit the number so we can include yours on our Annual Report. Contact Judy Gray at 756-0907 for information.
