United Methodist Women
“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one, Love the Lord your God with all heart and with all your soul, and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you to-day are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write then on the door frames of your houses and on your gates”. …Deuteronomy 6:4-9 NIV
PURPOSE OF THE 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.
The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.
We would like to invite all Methodist Women to join our organization. You can be a member of UMW, without joining a Circle. If anyone would like more information, just let us know. You can contact any UMW member.

United Methodist Men
VISION—The ministry of men in the local church is defined as a core group of men, partnering with their pastor, to invite and initiate spiritual growth opportunities for all men of the church. Everyone has different gifts, graces and areas of interest. Therefore, opportunities for participation would include diverse ministries of the church, such as prayer groups, missions, Bible studies, retreats, workshops/seminars, small groups in the Wesleyan tradition, leading and participating on committees, teaching Sunday school classes, youth ministries, scouting, mentoring and assisting in leading worship service. The focus is not inward, concentrating only on those who attend a set meeting, but outward to all men, assisting them to engage the process of spiritual growth.
MISSION—Our mission is to support spiritual growth among men, helping men to mature as disciples as they encourage spiritual formation in others.
GOAL—Our goal is to empower the ministry of Jesus Christ through men within the congregations of the UMC.
PATHWAY—Our pathway is a lifelong commitment to spiritual growth to maturity as Christ followers. Our spiritual formation is marked by spiritual reproduction, as our faith passes on in others.
