United Methodist Women
United Methodist Women is part of the Women’s Ministry of MDUMC. UMW is a supportive fellowship of women working and serving to create a world in which all women and children will thrive. Our mission is to empower women, care for children and the neglected, educate and equip youth, advocate for social justice issues, create economic opportunities and strengthen our neighborhoods. We raise money to support women’s and children’s ministries.
MDUMW will soon donate over $60,000 in Grants to various women’s and children’s ministries. This money comes from profits earned at our Hearts & Hands Holiday Market in October, from our member’s pledges and our Generations Cookbook.
MDUMW has 5 small groups or Circles that meet weekly or monthly. They are Common Thread, MDUMC Moms, Mission Stitchers, The Music Circle, and The Reading Circle. All the Circles meet together once a month for the UMW Program Meetings. Our Program Meetings are on the first Tuesday of the month. We start at 9:30 AM with a brunch.
