Our Purpose: The organized unit of the 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 the concept of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.

UMW Reading Program

The Reading Program encourages United Methodist Women to be informed about current issues by reading member-reviewed books. The knowledge gained from reading these books not only deepen our spirituality but gives us a better understanding of missions. The BUMW’s book collection is kept on the shelves under the bulletin board in the Fellowship Hall. The 2018 book list can be found here.

Craft Ministries

Members meet during Circle meetings or as a group to make items that support missions.  If you do not sew, don’t stay away! There are always tasks to complete that do not require a sewing machine or the knowledge of knitting.  These meetings are a  good way to fellowship while working to spread the love of God to those in need.
