United Methodist Women

Many women were also there, looking on from a distance; they had followed Jesus from Galilee and had provided for him.  Matthew 27:55

Program:  “Women Responding and Serving in Christ’s Name” presented by Helen Glidden


Bring a sandwich to share. Salad and dessert will be provided


2019 marks the 150th anniversary of women in mission.  On March 23, 1869, a few women in Boston formed the Women’s Foreign Missionary Society of the Methodist Episcopal Church.  They sent two women missionaries to India.  Isabella Thoburn started a school for women and Dr. Clara Swain provided health care and started a hospital for women.

We will be celebrating our organizations 150th birthday all year with special celebrations in the month of March.  As part of the celebration, a legacy fund endowment campaign has been going on for four years.  All are encouraged to donate to the fund as they are able.  The fund will be used to serve women, children, and youth all over the world into the future.  Click on the “150” below for more information.


Happy Birthday United Methodist Women!

These three short videos from United Methodist Women National Office tell our history in an entertaining fashion:

The League of Extraordinary Women

In the late 1800s, women in India could not get medical attention from male doctors – yet there were no female physicians. Eight Methodist women raised money and sent the first female missionary; that was the first of thousands of mission projects that would build what we now call United Methodist Women.


The Amazing Adventures of Alma Matthews

This animated short tells the story of Alma Mathews who assisted young women immigrants in the late 1800’s in New York City. Alma Mathews’ House on 12th Street in lower Manhattan still welcomes visitors who work to make the world a better place.


Pauli Murray & The True Story of Courageous Women

True story! An attorney’s tale of being hired by the Women’s Division to end segregation in schools and the publication of “States’ Laws on Race and Color.” This book was influential in Brown vs. the Board of Education which ended segregation.
