Turning Faith, Hope, and Love into Action on behalf of women, children and youth around the world.

United Methodist Women are women of purpose, vision, faith, and mission. We seek wholeness for ourselves and for others. We live out our faith in acts of justice and mercy and serve as catalysts for needed social change. Ours is a sisterhood of Faith, Hope, and Love in Action.

United Methodist Women (UMW) is an organization of approximately 800,000 members world-wide whose purpose is to foster spiritual growth, develop leaders, and advocate for justice. UMW advocates for the oppressed and dispossessed and works to build a supportive community among women and helps foster growth in the Christian faith, mission education, and Christian social involvement. Members raise nearly $25 million each year for programs and projects related to women, children and youth in need in the United States and in more than 100 countries around the world. 

United Methodist Women work to strengthen our faith through Bible studies, retreats, and inspirational events. We seek to find our own way to walk with God and search within ourselves for spiritual growth and understanding.

We invite you to explore how you can share your gifts, compassion, interests and abilities with those in need through membership in United Methodist Women.
