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 person through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative, supportive fellowship; and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.
My prayers, that I may experience growth and renewal in my relationship to God and to my sisters and brothers;
My time, that I may respond to human need through study, action and reflection;
My financial gifts, that I may share in the global ministries of the church through UNITED METHODIST WOMEN
As a Member of United Methodist Women,
I affirm and support the PURPOSE
I assume a part in the support of UNITED METHODIST WOMEN’S work in the local unit, in the community, across the nation, and around the world.
I aspire to educate myself about the mission work of UNITED METHODIST WOMEN.
I aim to engage in critical analysis and active listening, being open to differing views and perceptions.
We have six circles that meet at various times each month; some at the church, others in the home of members. On the first Tuesday of most months we meet at noon at the church for lunch together, a business meeting and program. In May we have a banquet for members and friends and in August we visit one or more UMW, Mission sites within Mississippi. UMW Missions studies are emphasized. This year our studies include “Globalization :it’s Impact in our Lives”, “Shalom-Peace-Salaam” and a geographic study of “India and Pakistan”.
We also participate in District and conference activities. Our special projects support UMC Missions in Mississippi, throughout the USA and the world.
We will be glad to give you more specific details concerning UMW and help you find a circle that will suit your personal interest. For more information contact Outreach Ministry by calling 601-326-3443.
