United Methodist Women

United Methodist Women (UMW) is a worldwide 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.


Here in the Myers Park Unit, we offer groups known as Circles, which meet at various days and times for educational meetings, book study, service projects and long-term support and fellowship.
