United Methodist Women

The United Methodist Women (UMW) strive to turn faith, hope and love into action on behalf of women, children and youth around the world as well as within our church and local community. Join our supportive sisterhood of women and be nourished by the shared desire to commit to sharing God through mission.


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. 


Join us for a meeting on the first Tuesday of each month! We meet in New Hope Classroom (using the rear entrance of the church) at 1 PM. All women are invited!
