United Methodist Women

United Methodist Women (UMW) is a worldwide organization with a total of over a million women.

We support missions all over the world (women, children and youth). Our purpose is to know God, to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ, to have a creative, supportive fellowship and to help with missions with lots of love tucked in.

United Methodist Women gather several times a year for special events and meetings.

Together we enjoy a variety of programs at various times and days. Members enjoy the fun and fellowship of these times together. We offer our time and talents as we participate in prayer, giving, study, action, service and parties.

United Methodist Women are devoted to mission. We give whatever amount we can to aid missions world-wide, nationally and locally. We also hold a Bazaar every fall to earn money for missions. Members volunteer their talents and time to create shops full of holiday gifts, decorations, home-baked goodies, candy and country store items. The early morning coffee shop and the noon lunch are long-awaited favorites for many people. Profits are used for mission.

Our local UMW also sells R.D.A. cutlery. Gift sets or individual tools are for sale now. These are excellent kitchen tools. Please leave your name and phone number with the church office staff, phone 377-4856, so a UMW member can contact you with details.

UMW is led by an Executive Board. Officers are elected by the membership and serve two-year terms. Any UMW member is welcome to attend Board meetings.
