The mission of the United Methodist Women is to 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.
All women in the church are invited to participate.
United Methodist Women focuses on mission with emphasis on women, children and youth.
Our mission initiatives include:
Providing opportunities to grow spiritually, and providing transformative educational experiences through
reading books that increase our understanding of societal issues and may take us out of our comfort zones.
Working for justice through service and advocacy.
United Methodist Women's Group meets the second Monday every other month at 7PM.
Meetings may include a Guest speaker, Book discussions, program of prayer and self-denial.
