United Methodist Women
UMW Purpose Statement
The organized unit of the 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.
At the core of our UMW unit is spiritual development. Women seek to grow in faith and to understand their involvement in God's mission through prayer, Bible study, and worship. Our Purpose challenges us to participate in the global ministries of the church. We are committed to being involved in mission work for women, children and youth. Our Resale Shoppe, located in downtown Lowell, supports both local and world missions.
Women of all ages are invited to join one of our three UMW circles. The only requirement is a desire to join and a willingness to abide by the Purpose. Our circles meet monthly as listed below:
Alpha-Barbara May Circle: First Friday at 1:00 pm (except Jan. & Feb.)
Naomi Circle: Second Thursday at 7:00 pm (except Jan. & Aug.)
Susanna Wesley Circle: Second Monday at 7:00 pm (except July & Aug.)
