"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."
WHAT IS UNITED METHODIST WOMEN?
UMW is the group of women in each congregation organized for mission. UMW has existed under many different names since 1869.
Churches have merged, but all titles have reflected the church into mission partnership with God. Because the United Methodist
Church is a connectional church, local units of UMW relate directly to district and conference organizations of UMW and the Women’s
Program Division of the General Board of Global Ministries.
WHO ARE THE UNITED METHODIST WOMEN?
We are women like you…women of diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds; employed, not employed; housewives; businesswomen;
single, married, divorced, young, middle–aged, and older women. We are women committed to mission.
Annually, the New Hope United Methodist Women give more than $5,200 to support The UM Children’s Home, Red Bird Mission, ZOE ministry,
Bethlehem Center Camp Mission, Upper Room, UMW worldwide, NH UMC Health and Welfare, gifts in honor, memory, candle burning,
etc. The undesignated giving of the United Methodist Women touches the lives of many persons around the world. The total program of
UMW is mission––including mission education, spiritual growth, outreach, and action.
