- About Us
What is United Methodist Women?
UMW is the group of women in each congregation organized for mission. UMW has existed under many different names since 1869. Churches have merged, but all titles have reflected the church into mission partnership with God. Because the United Methodist Church is a connectional church, local units of UMW relate directly to district and conference organizations of UMW and the Women's Program Division of the General Board of Global Ministries.
The Statement of Purpose of United Methodist Women:
"The organized unit of United Methodist Women shall be 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."
The United Methodist Women meet on the second Tuesday of each month for a meal and a study of an area of ministry in the world.
Several of the women host a monthly UMW at The Oaks Retirement Home
Each year the women lead worship and recognize individual contributions to the church community.
UMW Sunday is coming this September 28. Come to hear the sermon by Velva Riddle. Get involved with the UMW on the 2nd Tuesday evening of each month in the Banquet Rm. At 5:30 p.m.
