UMW Purpose 
The organized unit of 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.

Who Are We? 
Women of diverse ethnic and socioeconomic background, employed, not employed, housewives, business women, single, married, divorced, young middle-aged and older women. We are women committed to mission.

Organization of our Local Unit 
We meet monthly for fellowship, special program presentations, and spiritual uplifting. Our meetings are generally at the church and we have attempted to alternate evening and daytime gatherings from month to month. We sponsor mission fund-raising events and activities in order to support local and global mission projects. We take primary responsibility for serving our faith community in times of death by hosting a meal for surviving family members and friends.

Why Join UMW? 
Women join to grow spiritually, educationally and intellectually; to be stimulated, to gain leadership experience, to meet other women and to be involved in mission in a number of ways. If you want to become a member, there is a place for you, and you are invited to join. Please contact  Robin Luzin, UMW Representative, or the church office, (847) 931-5400.
