United Methodist Women (UMW) is a faith-based membership organization within The United Methodist Church. UMW members are committed to growing as disciples of Jesus Christ in community with other women and advocating on behalf of women, children, and youth around the world. United Methodist Women has been in mission for over 140 years.
At St. Paul’s, we are an active, faith-driven group of over 200 carrying the UMW mission and traditions forward through various ministries and programs.
The organized unit of United Methodist Women is 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 the concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.
UMW circles are small groups of UMW members who meet regularly for spiritual growth, missions, and social interaction. Circles are open to all. For more information or to join a circle, contact the circle chair.
The Reading Program is a study opportunity for UMW members. For 140 years, UMW has been involved in mission that includes prayer, study, and action. The purpose of the program is to encourage UMW members to:
Expand understanding of and participation in God’s mission.
Increase sensitivity to all human beings—their needs, interests, and concerns.
Encourage critical thinking about issues facing humanity today.
Grow in understanding of Scripture as it relates to Christian faith in contemporary life.
Enhance self-knowledge and act from that knowledge.
Strengthen involvement in local and global Christian mission.
