United Methodist Women


Who is a Member?

Any woman who commits herself to the The Purpose and chooses to belong.

The Purpose

United Methodist Women is 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.
  • To expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.

The United Methodist Women are one million members strong and are often described as the largest organized women’s group in the world.

An Invitation to Membership

To the woman:

  • Who finds meaning in her church and is drawn to its fellowship.
  • Whose life is packed full of activity and obligations.
  • Who struggles with loneliness or a sense of failure.
  • Who wants to combine classroom study with significant fellowship and outreach opportunities.
  • Who seems overburdened with the traditional woman’s role of caregiver.
  • Who feels she has gifts which are wasted or undeveloped.
  • Who wants to be accepted for who she is.
  • Who needs a supportive community to affirm her own sense of purpose and commitment to God.

We invite you to membership in United Methodist Women.  We have three United Methodist Women’s groups at Manchester First United Methodist Church.
