Mah Jongg

Mah Jongg

Mah Jongg is an ancient Chinese tile game that has a similarity to gin rummy. (This is not the computer solitaire version.) If you do not know how to play we will teach anyone who wants to learn. Consider coming out on Wednesday at 12:30pm in the parlor for a great time of fellowship. If you would like to know more about the game or the group please see Diane Soper.

A movie night which is usually a classic gem, barbecue, Riversharks game, a local play, Christmas Caroling, game night, surprise auction, or a trip to a museum are all things that may be on the schedule for the month. Always a fun evening, you are invited to come out for a good time!

Continuing throughout the summer you are invited to be part of our golf group. We play at area golf courses in the evening, usually 9 holes. It is a time of fellowship while we chase our ball around the course. All are welcome including friends. This not the PGA so we welcome all skill levels. Contact Tim Weiler or Pastor Charlie for more information.

History of Epworth UMW

Our history at Epworth UMC began over a century ago as many different names

  • 1895 – The Ladies Aid Society
  • 1909 – The Women’s Foreign Missionary Society
  • 1942 – The Women’s Society of Christian Service
  • 1972 – The United Methodist Women

In 2010, Epworth UMW was recognized by The Women’s Division of the General Board of Global Ministries of the United Methodist Church as an official charter unit.

In 2011, Mary’s Closet was opened under the leadership of Donna Undercuffler. The mission of Mary’s Closet is to help clothe women, children and youth of families, who are guests of The Bread of Life Food Pantry, by reaching out in faith to bring the hope of Christ through our actions and love.

In 2013 United Methodist Women became an independent agency.
