United Methodist Women

 

United Methodist Women is a group of women

in eachUM Women congregation that is organized for mission. United Methodist Women is the largest denominational faith organization for women with approximately 800,000 members whose mission is fostering spiritual growth, developing leaders and advocating for justice.

 

Any woman who commits herself to the purpose of United Methodist Women and chooses to belong is a member of United Methodist Women.

 

Members are expected to support the organization’s programs through prayers, financial contributions and acceptance of leadership responsibility.

 

United Methodist Women members are involved in everything from their local food pantry, to seeking just policies from state and local governments, to mobilizing missions of dollars every year to support programs that help women, children and youth around the world. Their prayers for the work of missions are very important too.

            We offer our prayers for growth and renewal in our relationship to God;

            We offer our time in support of the needs that arise in our community as well as outside our community;

            We offer our financial gifts so that we can share in the global ministries of the church through United Methodist Women;

            And we educate ourselves about the mission work of United Methodist Women by:

            Reading Response magazine;

            Participating in annual mission studies;

            Attending Schools of Christian Mission;

            Participating in the Reading Program;

            Attending unit, district & conference events;

            Participating in program and training activities.

            Our focus is on the love and support of women, children and youth around the world.

            As Jesus said in Matthew 25:40, “Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.”

            Let’s put our faith into action!
