United Methodist Women

United Methodist Women is an organization whose circles meet on different days and on different times of the day in an attempt to meet the needs of as many women as possible. Six times a year we meet together. Each circle and the Executive Committee take turns representing the church working at the Wardrobe and we all contribute individually and collectively to missions in and around Columbia. The 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 MUMC unit includes eleven women's circles that meet at various times during the month. UMW General Meetings are usually held on the first Wednesday of each month and feature a special program and fellowship time.
