United Methodist Women (UMW)

We’re women of all ages serving Jesus,
supporting each other and making a difference.

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.

Recycle with a Reason

UMW collects several items for charities and missions at home and around the world.

  • UPC labels for Campbell Soup Labels for Education are sent to Glenwood Park Elementary School.
  • Clothing and personal items for Charis House ~ the women’s division of the Rescue Mission.
  • Box Tops for Education are also sent to Glenwood Park Elementary School.

There are collection cupboards for all of the above mentioned items located just outside Raasch Hall.
