Emma Norton
MN National Mission Institution of UMW

United Methodist Women's predecessor organizations established social service programs across the United States at the turn of the 20th century in response to the needs of marginalized and vulnerable communities— newly arrived immigrants, freed Blacks, the working poor, and indigenous peoples. Many of these programs survive today as independent, autonomous non-profit agencies referred to as National Mission Institutions.

United Methodist Women is turning faith, hope, love into action on behalf of women, children and youth around the world.


  • We provide opportunities and resources to grow spiritually, become more deeply rooted in Christ and put faith into action.

Program Book 2020-2021 - Knitted Together for God's Good Work

Knitted Together for God's Good Work explores how we as
children of God are joined and linked together into the whole body of Christ. Even at times when social distancing or other obstacles may keep us physically apart, we are knit together in community to transform the world.

New This Year: To ensure that everyone can join together virtually for monthly study and bonding, instructions on how to use videoconferencing platforms are provided, along with suggestions on how to adjust program activities for these forums.


Living Our Vision

We have been organized for mission for 150 years, answering God's call to make the world one in which all can thrive.

Our Purpose

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 United Methodist Church.

Purpose song.
