The Purpose of United Women in Faith

The Purpose is adopted by the General Conference of The United Methodist Church as the official mission statement of United Women in Faith.

United Women in Faith 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.

Out of the Purpose are four mission foci that relate to the the mission initiatives and priorities of United Women in Faith.

  • To be a community of women
  • To know God
  • To develop a creative and supportive fellowship
  • To expand concepts of mission
We enjoy:  

  •  Companionship Meeting with our sister units, sharing our Lenten breakfast. 

  •  Having members young and old who love and support

  • Come join us for a special time and a cup of coffee 

We are ABOUT MISSIONS for women and children here at home and throughout the world. We do this with money we earn through work and fellowship.
Who can join United Women in Faith?

Any woman who commits herself to the PURPOSE of United Women in Faith and to engage in mission, study, personal growth and social action can join. You don’t have to be United Methodist or meet an age requirement to be a member.

It’s easy to become a member of United Women in Faith: you can talk to someone you know who is already a member.
