United Methodist Women
From its beginning, United Methodist Women has focused on ministry with women, children and youth. Currently, this mission-focused organization has 800,000 members worldwide.
The United Methodist Women of Christ U.M. Church meet at various times throughout the year at 12:30 p.m. in the church Fellowship Hall. Included in each gathering is a time of food and fellowship, an interesting program focusing on mission with women, children and youth, a summary of an article from the Response magazine and a brief business meeting. The scheduled meetings for the remainder of the year are: September 6 and December 6. All ladies are invited!
Also, a branch of the United Methodist Women’s unit is Faith Circle. This evening ladies group meets monthly during the school year and offers a second opportunity to grow in relationship and knowledge of the mission work we are called to embrace.
The Purpose of the United Methodist Women:
