United Women in Faith

United Women in Faith seeks to connect and nurture women through Christian spiritual formation, leadership development, creative fellowship and education so that they can inspire, influence and impact local and global communities.

Know God: United Women in Faith gatherings include devotions, Bible study, prayer support, as well as a reading program. We seek to know God and follow His guidance as we fulfill our purpose.

Fellowship: CIrcle meetings offer a small group atmosphere where support and sisterhood is developed. In addition, events and programs are scheduled to be interesting and include all women of the church in a relaxed, educational, and social setting.

Mission: Women of all ages have the opportunity to invest their time, talents, and financial gifts to benefit women, children, and youth. Local, state, and world-wide mission efforts include pleasant group-building and fund-raising activities, pop tab collections, assembling health and school kits, sewing reusable diapers, and sorting donated clothing.
