The Church With A Warm Heart
 
     The United Methodist Women is 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.
