United Methodist Women:
Faith • Hope • Love in Action

We are women with a Purpose!

"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."

We equip women and girls around the world to be leaders in communities, agencies, workplaces, governments and churches.

We are organized for growth, with flexible structures leading to effective witness and action.

We provide educational experiences that lead to personal change in order to transform the world.

We work for justice through compassionate service and advocacy to change unfair policies and systems.

We provide opportunities and resources to grow spiritually, become more deeply rooted in Christ and put faith into action.

800,000 members work for justice and support mission in a creative, inspirational and supportive fellowship.Find out why!
