The purpose of the UCW is to unite the
women of the congregation for the total mission of the
Church. The work of the UCW is supported and strengthened
through its activities which provide opportunities for
spiritual growth, Christian fellowship, and leadership
The membership is involved in projects such as
the “Gently Used” rummage sales in April and October, the
Soup Sandwich and Dessert Luncheon which includes a Bake
Sale in May, and the Fall Supper in October as well as
catering for our funerals. We also join with local church
Women of other denominations in the World Day of Prayer and
the Fellowship of the Least Coin services. We remember
our shut-ins and bereaved members with “cookie trays” at
Christmas time. Our units rotate the commitment to
greeting at church services, presenting monthly programs at
Country Meadows Seniors Home and visiting those who need
some extra TLC.
Proceeds from our fundraising efforts are
disbursed among local as well as national and international
recipients. Our main priority is the local Neepawa
United Church Board, the Sunday School, Youth Group and
Choir, plus the local Salvation Army while the national
groups include St. Andrews College, Rock Lake Camp (the
Youth Camp for our Presbytery), Calling Lakes Centre, the
United Church Mission & Service, the Canadian Bible
Society, and the Leprosy Mission.
Each year special Christmas offerings have been
disbursed towards organizations such as STAR ambulance,
Doctors without Borders, Stephen Lewis Foundation, Rossbrook
House and the Canadian Food Grains Bank.
This energetic group of women is formed into 5
units meeting monthly and one unit meeting every second
month. There is a general meeting for the executive
and anyone interested held on the 1st Wednesday of each
month at 10 a.m. in the meeting room of the church.
There are no meetings during July and August.
Please Join Us!
Most of all we enjoy the fellowship that we
receive from each other! We welcome new members to share in
the important outreach to our community. If you are
interested contact any member of the UCW or the Church
