United Methodist Women
The United Methodist Women unit is organized for mission and serves the local church, the community, and the world through its mission education, advocacy, and direct service through the Board of Global Ministries.
It is important to note that membership in a United Methodist congregation does not automatically make a woman a member of the organization. She must express a desire to be a member and must wish to follow the Purpose as stated in the Handbook and other publications.
Spiritual development of members, mission education and support are primary functions of the local unit. All the districts have elected officers who can give assistance to any local church which wishes more information about United Methodist Women. The conference officers are ready and willing to go to local churches when needed.
