WHAT DOES MEMBERSHIP MEAN?It means joining a global community of women — over half a million — who are committed to the same purpose and have a passion to change the world around them. Any woman who commits herself to the Purpose of United Methodist Women and to engage in mission, study, personal growth, and social action can join. You don’t have to be a United Methodist or meet an age requirement to be a member.
HOW DO I JOIN?It’s easy to become a member of UMW, just talk to someone you know who is already a member of the organization.
WHAT DO UNITED METHODIST WOMEN DO?Members of UMW are active in their church and the world around them in all kinds of ways. You’ll find members serving, teaching, sharing and advocating for others all over the world. United Methodist Women members are committed to spiritual growth, giving to mission, social justice and living out their faith. They meet regularly for prayer, study, social action and mission engagement — they also get together just to have fun. Many United Methodist Women members take on leadership roles at one time or another. Members might find themselves serving on behalf of the organization at local, district, conference, jurisdictional or national levels at some point in their lives.
