Ignited for Justice

We are a community of women whose main 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. In support of these goals, we provide monthly programs, special mission studies, retreats, and other spiritual enrichment opportunities.

We seek to strengthen fellowship ties through smaller circles within our group as well as expanding fellowship ties to our larger community through District and Conference UMW or mission events.

Membership is open to any woman who indicates her desire to belong and to to participate in the global mission of the Church through United Methodist Women.
