Through Jesus Christ, United Methodist Women strive to be a community of women committed to knowing God, to developing a creative and supportive fellowship, and to being involved in mission opportunities. This community of women seeks to be:
- Committed to inclusiveness.
- Focused on ministries with women, children, and youth.
- Followers of Jesus Christ who live their faith in acts of justice and mercy.
- Catalysts for needed change.
The United Methodist Women (UMW) is a nationwide organization. Here at FUMC Ann Arbor the UMW has various programs throughout the year. The theme for 2016 is: Growing in Blessedness. (The 2016 UMW Program calendar is listed at the left.)
All women are invited to participate in these times of fellowship, worship, and learning. The times and locations are announced in worship bulletin announcements and our monthly newsletter (see above).
There are also many gatherings of various groups at varying times and days (see groups at left) as well as other activities which are often announced in the weekly worship bulletin announcements, and can be found on this website. Visitors are welcome to attend any of the gatherings. If you would like to receive occasional e-mails about up-coming UMW events, please phone or e-mail Dee Chapell (668-7160, email@example.com ).
Our emphasis on missions requires that we raise funds for good deeds. Pledges by members and sales during the year help us to accomplish this.
