What Do We Do?

Members of United Women in Faith 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 Women in Faith 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 Women in Faith 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.

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 Women in Faith 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.
