Women actively choose to become involved in the organization's mission and support the purpose.
During the past year, a number of projects have been completed. Proceeds to date from cookbook sales provided $1,025 to the Murphy Harpst Home. The local Clute Barrow Nelson Life Foundation, supporting children with cancer, received $100, and 12 Tuckston babies were honored with donations to missions. School bags and layette kits were assembled and donated for disaster relief through UMCOR, and the annual UMW district meeting was hosted at our church. Cookbooks are still available, and a Tupperware fundraiser is planned for March. All women of the church are invited to participate in programs and mission projects.
