Women and Community

At the last women's retreat, more than half the women said that they wanted to feel a greater sense of community with other women. To that end, a group of us started planning and facilitating activities (usually monthly) to bring women together to spend time with each other, get to know each other better, and have fun or learn something, etc.

All women are invited to these activities. You do not have to join anything or make any kind of commitment--just come! Connect, enjoy… 

Of course, if you are interested in doing more, we welcome suggestions for activities and people who are willing to co-host an activity. You would also be welcome to come to our planning meetings with your ideas and enthusiasm. For more information, including a list of future activities, contact Eleanor Smith (


Newcomers & Inquirers Session: Held most first Sundays of each month. Membership & Publicity Committee hosts these gatherings in the church library after worship. There is a short presentation of the history of the UCC as well as information about Umstead Park United Church of Christ. (Next session is July 1.)

Creativity Group: The morning craft group meets the first and third Tuesdays of each month at 9:30 a.m. The evening Creativity Group is held the second Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. Come with your own individual creative projects, come to socialize, or come to try your hand at making a card.
