Who are we?
The United Methodist Women (UMW) is a community of Christian women with many gifts who are unified by one Spirit.
We are part of an international group of women who: strive to build relationships within our church family and bring education, medical care and economic justice to women and children around the globe.
UMW members are all about Missions and the Joy they spread worldwide.
United Methodist Women support UMW local, state, national, and global missions.
We make a financial pledge to global missions yearly. This is only the beginning of our commitment to help and support missions.
We have 4 major ways to support Missions….
1st through our individual pledges

  • Our Cookie Stroll…..in February
  • Our Fall Festival / Faux Fall Festival….
  • Our Pastry Sale…in November

Our different Circles participate in a variety of other service projects and social events.


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