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 emblem for UMW is the the same as that used by Women's societies and Wesleyan Service guilds during the past quadrennium. It affirms our continuity as women organized for mission, even as its symbolism affirms our newness and renewal.
The emblem combines ancient symbols of the church dating back to the days of Christ and Pentecost. The cross and a flame symbolizing the Holy Spirit evoke images of sacrifice, witness, and service.
"I now remind you to stir into flame the gift of God which is within you..." -II Timothy 1: 16

UMW Advent Luncheon
We met in Wesley Hall for our Advent Luncheon with the church staff as our guests. Joyce Brown President welcomed everyone. After our meal, Wanda Ritchea, Campus Minister at Victoria College and University Houston Victoria, and three of her former students entertained us by singing Christmas Carols and reading Scriptures pertaining to Christmas. Wanda accompanied everyone on the auto harp. Following their performance, Special Mission Recognition Pins were presented to Rev. Tim Brewer and Heather Linville. The table decorations of miniature snowman planters were taken to our Christian Partners. Beryl Bierman closed the time together with a Christmas reading.
