Who are we?  A community of Women…….Like YOU!

We are women who find meaning in our church, and want to combine fellowship with study, worship and outreach opportunities.  We are women with gifts to share with others.  United Methodist Women is a community of women who nurture and encourage one another in their spiritual growth, personal leadership and transformation. 

 

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.
