In the United Methodist Church, the UMW's purpose is to "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." Union's UMW are very active, participating as members of circles and coordinating many outreach activities.
We invite you to attend a UMW program or a circle meeting and get to know the many wonderful women of Union! For more information, please contact the church office.

Equipping Ministry Mission
To help each of us discover and develop our spiritual gifts and talents in order to serve and glorify God. (Romans 12)
Equipping Ministry Vision
To be a unified church equipped to serve as ministers of Jesus Christ.
To accomplish its mission and vision, the Equipping Ministry of Union United Methodist Church encourages each member to discern and acknowledge his or her talents and own, unique, spiritual gifts by participating in the six-session NETWORK study. Equipped with this personal insight, Network participants are offered two paths of becoming more involved with the church’s ministries through:
(1) their personal profile becoming a valuable resume in the Lay Leadership Development team’s annual task of finding the right person to fill vacancies on the Adult & Family, Building, Children’s, Education, Equipping, Evangelism, Finance, Lay Leader, Methodist Men, Methodist Women, Missions, Music, PEP, Recreation, Staff Parish Relations, Stewardship, Student Lifeline, Trustees, and Young Adult ministry teams.
(2) choosing a volunteer path by better understanding a description of each ministry team.
