PURPOSE

UMW Logo

Welcome to the United Methodist Women’s web site. United Methodist Women have been in existence for over 147 years. Our purpose is to be in mission where ever there are women and children in need, in our country and around the world. We have circles that meet once a month for study and action of these needs, for spiritual enrichment and celebration of Liturgical Events. Also, through out the year special events are held. ALL WOMEN ARE INVITED TO ATTEND.

The OCTOBER 2017 newsletter is available here.
