Honoring the past, Serving in the present, Dreaming of the future.

What is the UMW? 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.

In summary: "freedom as women through Jesus Christ." To continue to grow a Christian Organization, thats frame work is already established, our hope is to build on what we’ve inherited; we can take it, make it ours, and go in the direction the Lord leads.

This is our time, opportunity to be, to show who we are, what we stand for, and who we want to help!
