Ministry with Women
Saint Luke UMC understands the importance of offering a variety of ministry opportunities for women in the church and in the community. Women provide strong and vital leadership in the life of the church. Here at Saint Luke we continue to seek new ways to support women of all ages. For more information on our ministries with women please contact Rev. Charlotte Brendel at 919-776-2012.
Women's Events and Retreats Committee plans special programs and activities with women in our church and community. Recently, women enjoyed the Café Chocolat Day Apart Retreat, sharing lots of yummy chocolate while learning more about the miracles of Jesus. The next big event is our Vintage Christmas on November 30 from 6:00-8:00 pm. Women will gather for a delicious dinner and enjoy a seasonal Christmas program.
United Women In Faith have several Circles that meet regularly to plan mission activities and other ministry opportunities. On December 5 our United Women in Faith will partner with our United Methodist Men for a church-wide Christmas dinner. Click here for more information.
Jesus With A Twist meets every fourth Thursday at 6:30 pm at Libations 139, a local bistro in Sanford. Women of all ages gather for food, fellowship, and a short devotion. Robin Showalter coordinates this wonderful ministry.
Marigold and Rose Ministry is a mentoring ministry with young women and "seasoned" women, with a focus on building deeper relationships. Young women are paired with older women and meet for conversation, sometimes during lunch. The entire group enjoys quarterly gatherings with special programs, fun, fellowship, and refreshments. Cohort #1 began March 2023. Cohort #2 will begin in 2024
