United Methodist Women

Our Purpose

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

“Until poverty, violence, inequality, racism, preventable deaths cease,
until women and children are no longer marginalized,
until we live in a world in which all thrive,
women need to be organized for mission.”

United Methodist Women are organized for mission in over 200 churches across Oregon and Southern Idaho.  We join hands and resources with women across the country and around the world to work for God’s kingdom of love and justice.  Together we work, give, and pray to support hundreds of projects for education, health, empowerment around the world.  Individually, we are in mission with women, children and youth in our own communities.

Join us!
