United Methodist Women

Our 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.

The purpose of the United Methodist Women is mission, and out of this flows a vital fellowship of study and action.  We read, study, pray, give, sew, support, nurture and affirm one another and those who serve in other parts of the Conference, the nation and the world.  The PRAYER CALENDAR is a guide for our prayer concerns; RESPONSE Magazine and the NEW WORLD OUTLOOK Magazine keep us informed of our missions and concerns of women.

Copies of each are available in the church library if you don’t have an individual subscription.

2017 United Methodist Women Program Booklets are available in the library, or send an email to .

2017 United Methodist Women events are also posted on the St. Paul's UMC of E-town group Facebook Page.
