Women of Faith - United Methodist Women
organized unit of Women of Faith (UMW) 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.”
According to the Book of Discipline of the United Methodist Church, it
is stated that “In every local church there shall be an organized unit
of United Methodist Women”. Our local unit is directly related to the
District, (Spoon River) and Conference (Illinois Great River). Membership is
open to ANY and ALL Women, to any woman who
indicates her desire to participate in over 100 Global Missions of the church.
Two Missions that our IGR Conference supports are Cunningham Children’s Home in
Urbana and the Lessie Bates Davis Neighborhood House in East St. Louis. For 150
years UMW has been living Faith, Hope and Love in Action.
