Iroquois River District United Methodist Women

The Purpose of United Methodist Women

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.

The website has a bundle of information and resources. It takes time and "playing around" sometimes to find what you want, but it is a vital source for all things related to Untied Methodist Women.
