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

United Methodist Women - Mission U
134 women, youth and children gathered at Mt. Wesley July 13th – 15th for Mission u. We had classes and gatherings on the topics of “What About Our Money? A Faith Response” and “Embracing Wholeness: An Earth Perspective for Covenantal Living”.
In What About Our Money, we studied the connection between our faith and our money, how we can live closer to God and to God’s people in our U.S. culture that is so deeply defined by money. Our relationship to money and material possessions defines who we are, what we value, how we live, and even shape what we believe.
Embracing Wholeness explored what it means to be in a covenantal relationship with all of creation, beginning with the theological and biblical foundation. It focused on the sacred community, the sacred self, and the practical side of covenantal living.
824 Hygiene Kits were brought for UMCOR. The children collected money for Holding Institute in Laredo and approximately $350 was given for the Christian Vocation Scholarship fund. A Silent Auction was held to benefit our Pledge to Missions.
