United Methodist Women

Goal

Our goal is to lift up Jesus by letting His love be seen in action in our lives. The United Methodist Women are dedicated to helping others grow spiritually and strive to use their God given gifts and talents to be linked with Christ in ministry and missions.

Emblem

The official emblem of the UMW is the cross and flame displayed inside the shape of a teardrop. The shape of the emblem is fluid and free-flowing suggesting change and mobility. It also symbolizes the Holy Spirit empowering us to witness and serve.

View

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.

  • To expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.

We invite you to join the United Methodist Women, to share your skills, and enjoy the spiritual fulfillment and joy from serving Christ. You do not have to be a member of our Church or United Methodist Women to attend any of the programs we offer. There is always a place for you!

Missions

All the money collected from our fundraisers and different projects goes directly to local and global missions. The UMW makes financial donations to UMCOR who then distributes the money based on need.

Education

The UMW at Bay Point Church promotes educational opportunities through the School of Christian Missions. We also sponsor a reading program that allows us to purchase books for our Church library with a discount from the Resource Center at the District Leadership Training and Mission Sampler. The more we read, the more we save. The official magazine of the United Methodist Women is entitled, Response. Its goal is to educate the UMW for missions, to interpret the purpose of UMW, and to strengthen the organization.
