We invite all women of our church to join a circle and participate in UMW activities for the church and local, national and global missions. 

 

Purpose

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, and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.

 

Emblem

The official emblem for the United Methodist Women, as well as for the United Methodist Church, combines the cross and a flame.  The cross and flame are ancient symbols of Christ and Pentecost.  The shape of the emblem is fluid and free flowing, suggesting change and mobility. “..I now remind you to stir into flame the gift of God which is within you.” (II Timothy 1:6a NEB)

 

Service Projects

The United Methodist Women Collect:

Boxtops for Education, which are found on General Mills products.  They will be given to area elementary schools.
