The women of First United Methodist Church are always busy joining in fellowship for God’s word and providing support to our church family. They meet at 1:30pm on the third Monday of each month from September to May. They take a summer vacation in June, July, and August. During the church year, JOY hosts the Birthday Banquet, FUMC has Talent Show Night!, and Holiday Bazaar, and other events. They also raise funds for a variety of needs in the church. For more information about JOY, contact Sallie Milholen at 919.742.4837. JOY also sponsors the following ministries:
Bereavement: This ministry is made up of all the women of the church. They are divided into four groups and called on a rotating basis when a church member passes away. Each lady in the group is asked to prepare a dish for the meal on the day of the funeral.
Fellowship: This committee is responsible for setting up and cleaning up for church meals. They welcome all volunteers.
