Women’s Ministries

For Moms:


Building Better Moms:
A place that meets you right where you’re at as a mom, woman, and friend. Learn how to be better equipped as a parent through speakers and discussion. Grow through a supportive network of moms who “get it”- from newborns to teens. Serve not only your family but also your community through outreach opportunities. This Fall Custer Road will continue to offer a place for moms of all ages to connect and grow together. Our group will meet mostly first Tuesday evenings of the month from 6:30-8:30 with fellowship and gathering opportunities available outside of meeting times. The annual registration fee is $20/person and includes childcare during regular meetings. Building Better Moms t-shirts (new design this year!) can be purchased for an additional $10.

Moms of Youth:
Calling all moms with youth in grades 6-12! We want you to join us for our Moms of Youth group. We meet every first and third Thursdays each month in the Crossings Area on the second floor at 11:30am. Come join in on the fellowship and fun with other moms just like you.  Click here to learn more.

The United Methodist Women (UMW) is a community of women whose purpose is to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ, to develop a creative, supportive fellowship, and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.

United Methodist Women has organized “circles” within the unit to encourage smaller groups of women with common interests to meet in order to learn, share and support each other. All groups invite anyone with an interest to visit and become a part of that group.

(Ask your circle leader about making child care reservations. Reservations must be submitted to Children’s Ministry a minimum of four days prior to the start time of said meeting or event. Cancellation of previously-made child care reservations is appreciated.)

SHINE started with a lunch among friends who discussed their faith, their connection to Christ and their shared desire to create a stronger, diverse and more connected ministry within Custer Road UMC. Our sincere desire is for women to find a place to connect, grow in God’s love and grace, and to find meaningful and lasting relationships with one another.
