United Methodist Women

United Methodist Women put support of mission to women, children and youth as their number one goal. UMW, formed in 1869 as the Woman's Foreign Missionary Society, has responded to needs at home and around the world and continues to do so. In the last year, through pledge to mission, UMW contributed $2.7 million to national ministries and $2.9 million to international ministries--all to women, children and youth.

 St. John's United Methodist Women support St. John's ministries through contributions to the Benevolence Food Voucher program, camp scholarships, and support for Family Promise and Vacation Bible School. St. John's UMW also supports local ministry such as HOPE Shalom at Asbury.

UMW offers learning related to our mission through our programs, Bible emphasis, and studies on current events and important issues of our day.

 Laughter and latte are vital to UMW fellowship! Our groups get together to support and care for each other and enjoy a cup of coffee and good food.
