United Methodist Women
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 -- approximately 800,000 members -- and around the world to work for God’s kingdom of love and justice. Through work, gifts, and prayers we support education, health, and empowerment projects around the world.
Our aim, in the words of John Wesley, is: "Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can".
Becky Warren, Conference President

Zimmerman Trust Grant
The Oregon-Idaho Conference of United Methodist Women Charter for Racial Justice Committee is pleased to announce a competitive grant program for monies from the Isobel F. Zimmerman Trust Fund.
Available money for 2018 will be about $2,000 (amount varies yearly), and could be awarded for programs directed toward leadership development of Native Americans or African Americans or in support of a United Methodist Women sponsored Foreign Mission Project. Application must be made through a brief proposal describing the work or project anticipated and the expected results. There shall be a clearly demonstrated need.
Additional information and application are available here.

Dear United Methodist Women Conference Leaders and Native American Leaders,
We, the United Methodist Women Acts of Repentance Working Group, greet you in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
