United Methodist Women (UMW)

umw blue purpleA Community of Women

Come join us to get acquainted with other women—to have fun, to live your faith in community, to discuss ways to help women and children and to support mission projects locally, nationally, and globally.

United Methodist Women is Mission Oriented

This means a lot of different things. We’re always learning what is happening to people everywhere. We support mission personnel with prayer and offerings and support mission projects locally, nationally, and globally. We assure ministries to women and ministries to children—globally.

More than a Million Women

This unique group has been around for more than 100 years. We circle the globe with networks and span the nation with local units.

We are Purposeful

Our 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.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to fulfill the “Purpose of UMW” by creating small groups (Circles) that will provide opportunities to promote spiritual growth and supportive fellowship; and by having programs to develop awareness and encourage action and advocacy on behalf of women, children, and youth—locally and globally.

Our Events

We have five different circles that meet monthly at different scheduled times so you’ll be sure to find one that works for you. The Gertrude Sewing Group supports the United Methodist Children’s Home with their quilts.
