United Methodist Women

Members of United Methodist Women (UMW) of First United Methodist Church work together to turn faith, hope, and love into action on behalf of women, children, and youth in Bloomington and around the world.

Members of United Methodist Women, other church members, and friends knitted, crocheted, quilted and hand-tied 123 prayer shawls and baby blankets as part of a national effort that resulted in nearly 7000 shawls and blankets completed for distribution by the General Board of Global Ministries. This project was part of Assembly 2014, a quadrennial international gathering of United Methodist Women. The hand-tied blankets pictured were completed on MLK Day Jan. 20.
