Our membership of 40 women meets in two groups once a month. We also have a general group which meets monthly to distribute information, plan activities and fund raisers and enjoy programs. Meetings consist of devotion and program (planned and led by different persons each month), business and fellowship. We support the Women's Interchurch Council of Canada by collecting "least coins" through the Fellowship of the Least Coin.
To unite the women of the congregation for the total mission of the church and to provide a medium through which we may express our loyalty and devotion to Jesus Christ in Christian witness, study fellowship and service.
Each year during Advent, knitted, crocheted or sewn articles made during the year are collected by the congregation and donated to local Camrose charities. Items include mittens, scarves, sweaters, caps, slippers, knitted sets (cap, mitts & scarves), afghans, quilts, knitted toys and baby dresses.
The church accepts donations of yarn which is used by many knitters. An average of 375 handcrafted articles are delivered to local charities each year.
UCW was formed nationally and locally in 1962 uniting two groups of women of the church. One was the Women's Association (WA) which gathered for fellowship and also raised funds for the church. The second was the Women's Missionary Society (WMS) which studied the work of the missions and raised funds for missionaries.
Camrose United Church Women support the Mission and Service Fund with donations in the range of $7,200.00 annually. In addition, members give their free will offerings to two thank-offerings each year, one at Easter and Thanksgiving. One thank-offering each year goes to support some worthy national or international project; the other is used for a local program.
Camrose UCW has several events occurring annually or on a regular basis.
Meetings are in the Parlour
All units welcome new members any time of the year.
