The Purpose of United Methodist Women

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.

UMW Afternoon Circle

This group meets on the third Monday of the month at 1:30 p.m. from September through May. The focus of the meetings is both education and outreach. The studies this year have focused how to follow a lifelong journey of practicing forgiveness, restorative justice, and reconciliation in our lives. We have also explored the theology of mission and evangelism in the twenty-first century context of Christianity as a worldwide religion. This fall we will focus on a mission study of Haiti. Making No-Sew Blankets is the ongoing outreach project. These blankets are donated to Regions Hospital in Saint Paul or to the Saint Paul Council of Churches.
