United Methodist Women

Women of all ages of CCUMC enjoy fellowship while learning and working together. Many meet in small groups monthly for fellowship, to work on a project, or study a specific topic like climate change or Israeli- Palestinians relations. UMC programs are mission-oriented.

Our theme is Sisterhood and we are all asked to bring to the meeting a picture or object which reminds us of a sister, either by blood or friendship. Also have a candle ready to light in her honor.

We will talk about Sisterhood and how it relates to our mission as United Methodist Women. Come and meet your sisters in Christ and let’s talk about plans for the year.
Contact Carolyn Galvagna cawg1@yahoo.com or Judy Smith (smarmayor@aol.com) for more information.


The UMW Online Rummage Sale is finally here! We have launched the Rummage Sale using Facebook Marketplace. To access the items: 

  1. “Friend” – search for UMW Chevy Chase
  2. To view the items, you need to “attend” the online FB event. The event name is “Chevy Chase UMW Online Rummage.” All items are listed on the discussion board. Any remaining items will be listed on the UMW Chevy Chase FB page. 
  3. The items are also listed on FB Marketplace, but there is no ideal way to search for each item besides browsing. The items are “live” and open to the public, so several have already sold. 
  4. Right now, FB Marketplace, the event page and the UMW Chevy Chase FB page are the only ways to view all the items.

If you find an item you wish to purchase, click the item. Then send us a message informing us you would like to purchase the item. If it is still available, we will let you know. You will arrange with the seller or Katie Davis for pickup. We accepting cash or check payable to “Chevy Chase United Methodist Women.”

If you have donated items, you will either arrange for pick up directly with the seller. Alternatively, you may drop the item off with Katie Davis, and she will arrange for pick-up with the seller. Contact umwchevychase@gmail.com 

Finally, we will still accept items – furniture, collectibles, antiques, toys – everything should be in good or gently used condition. Contact umwchevychase@gmail.com
