Women’s Ministry

The purpose of Women’s Ministries is to give women a chance to live a transformed life through a relationship with Jesus Christ and other women. We demonstrate our commitment to Christ and our desire to follow in His steps with heads that think, hearts that love, and hands that serve.

Jesus’ amazing openness to everyone shapes our approach to Women’s Ministries. We welcome women at every place imaginable in life and invite you to experience the love of Christ through fellowship with other women.

Mission Statement

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.

Come Join Us and Get Involved

We host three luncheons per year, organize a fall bazaar (Saturday, November 9, 2019) and play an important role in the all church rummage sale in spring (April 12-13, 2019), offer support through monetary and item donation as well as hands-on throughout the year, AND gather together in more than nine circles of friendship on a monthly/weekly basis.

HOLIDAY BAZAAR

Women Offering Worship is in its 21st year of supporting and encouraging women of all ages in their faith.

WOW is women coming together to worship & study.  It is a supportive community of faith, for those searching, seeking or experienced faith-walkers.  For 21 years – women have come together here on Thursday mornings.

20th year of wow

This year’s mission money (all offerings from WOW worship) are going to an incredible program at Transformation City Church.

BLAST – Bible. Learning. Arts. and Science Together 

is a Wednesday after-school program for neighborhood children K4-5th grade.  Homework help, creative play, Bible learning, hot dinner and abundant positive mentoring all packaged together in a warm, welcoming and safe place to help stem the School-to-prison-pipeline – that so many under-advantaged, inner-city youth experience.  Those youth who have graduated/aged out of the program, are invited to return as MENTORS.  WOW is pleased to have collected over $650 in the fall and winter and we hope to collect even more this spring.

Worship and classes continue through Thursday, May 9th.

End-of-the-year brunch and planning for our 22nd year of WOW will be May 9, after worship.  For more information, contact Nell Nash, director of Women’s Ministries at nnash@umcwfb.org or 414-964-2424 x218
