United Methodist Women (UMW) is a faith-based membership organization of laywomen within The United Methodist Church. UMW has oversight of the denomination’s deaconess and home missioner programs within the new national United Methodist Women's organization. UMW advocates for the oppressed and dispossessed with special needs of women, children, and youth; works to build a supportive community among women; and helps foster growth in the Christian faith, mission education, and Christian social involvement. Each UMW group 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.
