A variety of  ministries, mission projects, discipleship paths and fellowship opportunities are available to women at West Lawn UMC. We invite all females to get involved in areas that interest them, and use their God-given gifts to bring glory and blessings to others. We encourage women to suggest and foster new ministries at any time. For more information regarding Women's Ministries, contact Kelly Rismiller.

Faithful Friends Consignment Sale
You can consign, donate, or volunteer for our consignment sale that's held in the Community Center in the fall and spring. Consigners offer like-new children’s clothing, toys, accessories, and more, at a fraction of retail prices. A portion of the profits are donated to local organizations that help less fortunate individuals and families in our community.

Women's Ministry Planning Team
Female friendships, support, and partners in mission are just a few of the areas that make women's ministry unique. All women are invited to become part of this ministry to coordinate, facilitate, organize, and participate in events and programs throughout the year.

Book Club
Once a month, women come together at West Lawn to discuss a book they've all read over the past few weeks. This group reads a variety of genre and engages in discussions about the text, the time period and the setting of the narrative.

Funeral Hospitality Team
Our congregation is blessed by the abundant hospitality provided by members of our church. A group of women help families feel loved during a difficult time by setting up refreshments, meals, and providing baked goods for a funeral or memorial service luncheon.
Contact: Debbie Schartel, 610-468-3147, firengr@comcast.net
Women's Small Groups
Small groups of women informally gather both on campus and in one another's homes to share in fellowship and life experiences as they strengthen their Christian friendships. We encourage all small groups to remain open to new individuals, as everyone can benefit from living in close community with one another.

Annual Fall Retreat
Each fall, a group of West Lawn women get together at an offsite retreat center for a weekend of reflection, renewal and relaxation. The group shares meals and lodging together, while a guest speaker guides the discussion and focus of the casual daily agenda.

United Women In Faith
Formally known as the United Methodist Women, this group meets monthly over lunch to plan events to put their faith into action. Their efforts support each other, the local community, as well as global outreach.

Exercise Class
Remaining physically fit and active, like Daniel in the Bible demonstrates, allows us to serve God to the best of our abilities throughout our lifetime. A group of women meet each Saturday morning at West Lawn to support one another's as they exercise together.
