Welcome to the UMW website. We meet Monthly on the 2nd Tuesday at 10:30a.m.
We normally have a program each month as well as a short business meeting. We would love to have you join this group of 23 women! All women of the church are invited. For those of you who like fellowship and no meeting agenda, July is the month to join us. Sometimes we just have an easy time of going out to lunch together. This month Sue Ann Lewis, a member of Duncan Memorial, and Richmond District UMW Coordinator of Spiritual Growth, will present a program with spiritual growth emphasis. Based on the Bible study “Twelve Extraordinary Women”, it will provide a look into some of the Bible’s most faithful women with a focus on their characters and situations, their Faith and how God intervened to make their lives truly extraordinary. Hope to see some new faces that want to be inspired.
UMW is the largest organization for women with approximately 800,000 members whose mission includes “spiritual growth, leadership development, transformative education and service and advocacy”. The purpose of the United Methodist Woman 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.
Its vision includes turning faith, hope and love into action on behalf of women, children and youth around the world.
