United Methodist Women

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.
 
Membership: "Membership shall be open to any woman who indicates her desire to belong and to participate in the global mission of the Church through United Methodist Women. The pastor(s) shall be an ex officio member of the local unit and of its executive committee."
 
United Methodist Women in Mission: United Methodist Women is a nearly 1 million member-strong organization of women who seek to know God and to make life better for women, children, youth and marginalized neighbors in the ever-expanding global village of today's world. United Methodist Women members meet in their local churches, during their lunch break at work, after classes on their college campuses and even online. However they choose to gather, members create a supportive community that nurtures their spiritual growth journeys and provides opportunities for:

  • Leadership development
  • Study of issues impacting their neighborhoods, nation and world
  • Participation in informed advocacy and actions
  • Financial support of institutions and projects empowering women, children and youth in the United States and around the world
