2018 Theme: 

SISTERHOOD of GRACE

We are a sisterhood of grace. As a xommunity of women organizes for mission it it important that we be the creative, supportive fellowship espoused in our Purpose.

On this 150th anniversary year of the United Methodist Women, let us recall our foremothers' efforts offering a "sisterhood of service around the world" with the dream of creating a "great world sisterhood."


UNITED METHODIST WOMEN ADVOCACY PRIORITIES

1. Maternal and child health

2. Climate justice

3. Economic inequality

4. Mass incarceration and criminalization of communities of color

Our more than 90 national mission institutions across the Unitd States are supported by members' giving and are changing lives everyday. Building God's "kin-dom" is a group effort--and United Methodist Women members are making sure it happens.
