Honor/Remember Your Mother or Other Special Woman in Your Life this Mother’s Day

Harriet Olson, Chief Executive, United Methodist Women shared: “When Ann Jarvis was working to establish Mother’s Day as a national event, and when her daughter picked up the mantle from her, they were not thinking about greeting cards and flowers.”


Instead, the Methodist women who invented the idea in America wanted to honor mothers in a deeper way.  Our New Creation UMW offers a means to honor/remember your mother or mother figure and support the work of mission to women, children, and youth around the globe.

Traditionally, on Mother’s Day, UMW raises mission dollarsUMW again is providing an opportunity for youby asking church members to honor or remember their mothers and/or mother figures by donating  $5.00 for each name. Names of all honorees and remembered ones are then listed in the church bulletin. The funds raised are used to support local, national and global missions that support a variety of ministries, i.e., Durham County Meals on Wheels, Bennett College, the Bethlehem Center of Charlotte, economic development for women in Sierra Leone, the education of girls at Hiroshima Girl’s School in Hiroshima, Japan, and many more.


UMW again is providing an opportunity for you to honor and/or remember your mother/mother figure. New Creation UMW solicits your support of our Mother’s Day fundraiser. All church members and friends received a mailing from New Creation UMW sharing about our work and our fund-raiser.

                          Distracted Driving Awareness Month – April 2021

Put down the phone and pay attention; April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month.

According to a phone company survey, almost 100% of teens agree that texting and driving is dangerous, but half admitted to doing it anyway. It may take only a matter of seconds to glance at your phone, but, if you are driving at 60 miles an hour, your eyes were blind to the road while you drove the length of a football field. Please don’t text and drive.



What are the four types of distractions while driving?

The four types of distractions are:

1.) Visual (looking at something other than the road)
2.) Auditory (hearing something not related to driving)
3.) Manual (manipulating something other than the steering wheel)
4.) Cognitive (thinking about something other than driving).

How common are distracted driving accidents?

Each day in the United States, approximately nine people are killed and more than 1,000 injured in crashes that are reported to involve a distracted driver.

What are the dangers of distracted driving?

Whether you take your eyes off the road or your hands off the wheel, all types of distracted driving increase your risk of car crashes, major injuries, and even death.
