Who we are
United Methodist Women is the largest denominational faith organization with over 800,000 members. It is a community of women who focus on mission through these initiatives: Providing opportunities to grow spiritually; Equipping women & girls to be leaders; Providing transformative educational experiences; Organizing for growth & flexibility; Working for justice through service and advocacy.
The ladies of the Mogadore United Methodist Women are committed to the Purpose of UMW which states: 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 concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.
We meet at 7:00 pm on the fourth Tuesday of each month, August through April. Meetings include opportunities for education, spiritual growth and fellowship. We also serve bereavement dinners, work on service projects, attend Mission U, participate in the UMW Reading Program, hold bake sales and serve dinners to the Mogadore Lions Club.
Women’s circles are a tradition of the United Methodist faith and we have three. Circles are small, unique groups of women who share similar interests and meet regularly to develop a creative, supportive fellowship through study, prayer and service. Small groups provide an intimate setting where we can develop close relationships with other remarkable women who walk in the path of God. Miriam Circle meets the 1st. Wed. at noon at the church. Naomi Circle meets the 3rd Monday at 7:00 pm in members’ homes. Rebecca Circle meets the 2nd Wednesday at 7:00 pm in members’ homes.
Our work supports the Canal District and global UMW, the United Methodist Committee on Relief, and many local charities including the Open M Clinic, Ellet Good Neighbors, the Mogadore Community Fund and Heart 4 the City.
