2023 Bazaar Proceeds will Benefit our Community and Beyond 

United Women in Faith (formerly the UMW) is humbled and grateful for the significant help and support the congregation provided to make the 2023 Bazaar possible – and a success – last November. Most importantly, the event netted a profit of $$6,892, an increase over 2022! At our February meeting, we decided how to help our community with the profits.  

Because of the current positive bottom line in our checking account at this time we were able to disburse $7,000 in funds to ministries across the area and beyond, including: 

  • HUMC Prayer, Care and Share ministry  

  • Cozy Quilts Ministry 

  • SS. Peter and Paul Food Pantry and Outreach 

  • Warm the Children – Hamburg 

  • Kathleen Mary House in Hamburg for those fleeing domestic violence situations 

  • Salary support for Dee Finch, pastor, at Seneca Street United Methodist Church in Buffalo 

  • Family Promise 

  • Buffalo Peacemakers violence prevention program 

  • Harvest House in Buffalo with ministries for children and families in need 

  • Journey's End Refugee Services 

  • Peace of the City, providing children and youth programming in Buffalo 

  • Cornerstone Manor, temporary housing for women and children 

  • St. Luke’s Mission of Mercy, Buffalo 

  • Project Mona House for those experiencing homelessness, orphaned and exploitation through human trafficking 

  • Rural Outreach Center 

  • United Methodist Committee on Relief – to help with disasters 

We also committed an annual pledge to the Niagara Frontier District United Women in Faith.   Thank you for helping us make a difference in our church, our community, region and beyond! 

Finally, we welcome all women to join our efforts by getting involved in our monthly Sarah Circle meeting at church on the second Thursday at 7 p.m. Our next meeting is April 11. Please join us!

Rejoice, heavenly powers! 

Sing choirs of angels! Exult, all creation around God’s throne!

Jesus Christ, our King, is risen!

Sound the trumpet of salvation!

Rejoice, heavenly powers!

Sing, choirs of angels!

Jesus Christ, our King, is risen!

Rejoice, O earth, in shining splendor,

radiant in the brightness of our King!

Christ has conquered! Glory fills you!

Darkness vanishes for ever!

Rejoice, heavenly powers!

Sing, choirs of angels!

Jesus Christ, our King, is risen!

This is the morning 

when Jesus Christ

broke the chains of death and rose triumphant from the grave.

Day truly blessed,

when heaven is wedded to earth,

and we are reconciled to you!

Rejoice, heavenly powers!

Sing, choirs of angels!

Jesus Christ, our King, is risen!

OPENING MUSIC: “Christ the Lord is Risen Today” #302 UMH


Almighty God,

through Jesus Christ you overcame death

and opened to us the gate of everlasting life.

Grant that we, who celebrate the day of our Lord’s resurrection,

may, by the renewing of your Spirit arise from the death of sin to the life of righteousness;

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
