“Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting,  but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.”  Proverbs 31:30

The purpose of the women’s ministry of First UMC is to provide women an opportunity to grow in grace and service through Bible Study, mission, organization, special events and the nurturing of one another.

United Methodist Women

The United Methodist Women work closely with the women’s ministry of First UMC. UMW is 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. UMW Circles meet monthly at various locations throughout the week.
