A community of women
whose PURPOSE is to know God
experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ;
develop a creative, supportive fellowship;
expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.
My prayers...that I may experience growth and renewal in my relationship to God and to my sisters and brothers;
My time...that I may respond to human need through study, action and reflection;
My gifts...through United Methodist Women, that I may share in the global ministries of the church.

An Invitation to Join Us
To the Woman...
who finds meaning in her church and is drawn to its fellowship...
whose life is packed full of activity and obligations...
who struggles with loneliness or a sense of failure...
who juggles jobs and family, and tries to be faithful to both...
who wants to combine classroom study with significant fellowship and outreach opportunities...
who seems overburdened with the traditional woman's role of care-giver...
who feels she has gifts which are wasted or underdeveloped...
who wants to be accepted for who she is...
who needs a supportive community to affirm her own sense of purpose and commitment to God...
...we invite you to participate in United Methodist Women.
All women of any age, interest, or character flaw are welcome to join at any time. Participation in the Gay Street United Methodist Women unit gives each of us an opportunity for growth in our individual spiritual experiences, as well as experiencing friendships that enhance each of our lives. It is an opportunity to give of our individual spiritual gifts while receiving invaluable insight and gifts from others of different ages and strengths.
Mission is our program. We take seriously the command from Jesus to "Feed any sheep." United Methodist Women hear the cries of women, children and youth and constantly look for ways in which we can support them. Through the global ministries of the church, UMW programs help people become as great as they can be.
Please join us - it's an exciting relationship!
