United Methodist Women (UMW)

UMW meets the 2nd Thursday of the month at 7:30 in the parlor. All women in the congregation are invited to attend.

Our United Methodist Women are 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

The emblem of the United Methodist Women, the cross and the flame, symbolizes our organization.The cross and the flame are ancient symbols of the church. Both symbols remind us of the opportunities and obligations of discipleship.

As parts of our emblem, the cross and the flame remind us of our PURPOSE of growing in our understanding of and willingness to participate in the global ministries of the church. They remind us of our heritage of women who pioneered in service for the church at home and in other countries.

The overall shape of the emblem is also symbolic. Fluid and free flowing, the shape suggests change and mobility. The women who came before us were at the forefront of movements for change. Always aware of the times, we move with ever-changing circumstances rather than feeling overwhelmed by them.

We are a twentieth-century movement called United Methodist Women. We are a group of Christian women with many gifts who are unified by one spirit. We participate in God's mission in all areas of life.
