United Methodist Women
...is 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.
Local Organization Meetings

Helping those in need
Helping women and children is the major emphasis for our organization. There are many opportunities to assist our community. They include, but are definitely not limited to:
UMW Bake Sale – The Rebecca Circle provides home-baked items every other month on the 3rd Sunday for donations. Proceeds are used for Grace United Methodist Women missions.
PURSES FOR LADIES AT THE SAFE HOUSE OF SEMINOLE – Every Christmas we sew 40 purses for the ladies at the Safe House. We fill them with treats such as make up, lotions, jewelry and whatever may bring a smile.
MAKING EMERGENCY KITS FOR THE UNITED METHODIST COMMITTEE ON RELIEF – These kits are given to people around the country during times of emergency such as hurricanes or floods. Each bag allows a person to take care of personal hygiene care when they have lost their homes, etc.
USING YOUR CREATIVE TALENTS – Sewing, knitting, and crocheting abilities are always in demand making items in support of those in need. Soft caps for cancer patients and sleep mats for the homeless have been among some recent mission focuses.
