The organized unit of 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.
