United Methodist Women

The organized unit of the 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."
 
Know God: UMW gatherings include devotions, Bible study, prayer support, as well as a reading program.  We seek to know God and follow His guidance as we fulfill our purpose.
 
Fellowship: CIrcle meetings offer a small group atmosphere where support and sisterhood is developed.  In addition, events and programs are scheduled to be interesting and include all women of the church in a relaxed, educational, and social setting.
 
Mission:  Women of all ages have the opportunity to invest their time, talents, and financial gifts to benefit women, children, and youth. Local, state, and world-wide mission efforts include pleasant group-building and fund-raising activities, pop tab collections, assembling health and school kits, sewing reusable diapers, and sorting donated clothing.
