United Methodist Women (UMW)

United Methodist Women is a national organization whose purpose is to develop supportive and creative fellowship, foster spiritual growth, advocate for social justice, and expand concepts of missions through participation in the global ministries of the church. The collective members of UMW raise nearly $25 million each year for programs and projects related to women, children and youth in the United States and in more than 100 countries around the world.
Glenn has seven UMW “circles,” listed below, which are small groups of women who meet monthly for fellowship, study, prayer, and discussions. Quarterly, the members of all the circles are invited to meet together for a business meeting and special speaker. All are welcome. Contact UMW President, Jean Luker.
