UMW Monthly Meetings:
UMW unit meetings are held at 1:30 on the first Thursday of the month in the Fireside Room.  The unit meeting consists of a short program, followed by a business meeting and fellowship time.

We have two smaller groups called Circles that meet on the second Thursday of the month.  Esther Circle meets at 1:30 pm for a recap of the Unit business meeting, and programs on faith and mission and fellowship.  Ruth Circle meets at 7:00 pm.  

We extend an invitation to all women to get involved with UMW.  We welcome new members!


As people of FAITH, we trust in the promise of Christ to bring light into darkness and new life into brokenness and death.

As people of HOPE, we celebrate and share the good news of Jesus Christ.  Together in the world we are partners in God’s mission of healing and wholeness so that all might have abundant life.

As people of God, we LOVE because God first loved us.  It is out of that love that we welcome all into community, unite what is divided, mend what is broken, call for peace where there is war, make just what is unjust, and offer hope where there is despair.

All God’s people in mission together in the world!

​Our Purpose: 
The organized Unit of the 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.
