The Purpose of the United Methodist Women

The United Methodist Women’s Organization is a Missional Outreach Organization. Its primary purpose is local, national and world mission.

 Our local unit gives grants to many local mission projects in Western Pennsylvania. We also send approximately $4,000 yearly to our parent organization, the Women’s Division of the United Methodist Church. The Women’s Division has its own missional outreach. One of the mission projects is the Ruth M. Smith Home in Sheffield, PA.

 The UMW adds much to mission efforts done in the world. It is the backbone of the mission effort of the Church.

 The members of MUM who support all of our fund-raising projects make it possible for our involvement in local, national and world mission.
