United Women in Faith
We connect spiritual women to act boldly for justice and transform communities.
We are women like you—women of diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds; employed, not employed; housewives; businesswomen; single, married, divorced, young, middle-aged, and older women. We are women committed to mission. The undesignated giving of the United Methodist Women touches the lives of many persons around the world. The total program of UMW is mission—including mission education, spiritual growth, outreach, and action.
The fellowship and educational and spiritual growth of the organization will be the focus of special meetings, Bible studies during Lay Academy sessions and meetings of small action teams–formerly called “UMW circles,” which meet once a month in homes or at the church.
