UMW United Methodist Women

A member of the United Methodist Women is anyone who commits herself to the purpose and chooses to belong. United Methodist Women celebrates an inclusive membership and welcomes all women who want to become members.

Being a member of the United Methodist Church is not required nor is there any minimum age requirement. Out of a commitment for mission locally and globally with women, children and youth, United Methodist Women choose to participate in meetings, prayer, financial giving, study, action and service.

United Methodist Women is a community of women who nurture and encourage one another in their spiritual growth, personal leadership and transformation. As a member, you accept the challenge to expand concepts of mission.

OUR PURPOSE. United Methodist Women is a community of women whose purpose is:

  • To know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ
  • To develop a creative supportive fellowship and
  • To expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.

WHY BECOME A MEMBER? United Methodist Women is a national membership organization with nearly one-million members whose purpose is to foster spiritual growth, develop leaders and advocate for justice. Members raise approximately $20 million a year for programs and projects related to women, children and youth in the United Stations and in more than 100 countries around the world.

Our UMW meetings are October 1 and November 12 following the 11 o’clock service.  Each month we will explore sacred spaces where you can experience God and neighbor.  As Christ’s disciples, we are entrusted with creating space of wholeness and abundance for all.  All women of the congregation are welcome!
