United Methodist Women

Who We Are:

We are a group of 50+ women who are seeking to serve God through mission work with particular emphasis on women and children locally and around the world. Werespect individual identity and cultural diversity, and welcome all who wish to join us in our
journey with Christ.

The following is the purpose of United Methodist Women as stated in the Discipline of the United Methodist Church:

“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.”

When We Meet:

We meet as an entire unit (General Meeting) every other month. The group is divided into three circles who meet at different times monthly except during the summer months. You can click on the calendar on our website to see the meeting times of the circles.

Ministries We Are Involved In: The members of the UMW at Bethany fulfill the Purpose by participating in meetings, prayers, giving, study, action, and service. Bethany UMW assembles health kits for men, women and children; layettes and lap robes for premature units at UNC hospitals, and collects eyeglasses for those in need. UMW supports Hispanic Ministries, urban and rape crisis programs, Methodist Children group homes, the Penny for a Prayer project, MATCH program, Christmas Shoe Box ministry, as well as many other community projects.
