A good website for ladies to get resources:
All women are invited to our circle and UMW Unit meetings.  We have six unit meetings each year, as well as hosting birthday parties for the residents at the Good Samaritan Society Nursing Home two times each year.  We also conduct a UMW church service each year. 
Canton United Methodist Women was started as Canton Ladies Aid in 1882 at the home of Mrs. Emma Wills.  Through the years meetings have been held in homes and at the church.  They held bakes sales, suppers, and picnics over the years to raise money for church projects.  Some of these projects include: the church basement and additions to the old building (in 1916), quilts and rugs, and kitchen cupboards.  In Sept. 1965, the 25th anniversary of the Woman's Society of Christian Service was celebrated with 33 chartered members.  In 1968 with the merger of teh church with Evangelical United Brethren, the name of the organization was changed to Women's Society of Christian Service and in 1974, the organization became known as United Methodiist Women. 
Purpose of the United Methodist Women:
The organized unit of United Methodist Women shall be 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 felloship; and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.
In 1974, the special services committee was organized to serve funerals, weddings, and open houses.  The women provided montly committees to organize events and the entire church membership is included. 
The first breakfast bazaar was held in 1980 and has continued to the present.  The money raised is used for mission work, helping with children's programs, Bible School, Confirmation, and graduation, etc...
We are members of the Lower James District of UMW.
