Methodist Women


The organized unit of the 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. 

 United Methodist Women is the largest denominational faith organization for women with approximately 800,000 members whose mission is fostering spiritual growth, developing leaders and advocating for justice. 

 Members raise up to $20 million each year for programs and projects related to women, children and youth in the United States and in more than 100 countries around the world. The UMW of LUMC support many missions including UMCOR, Lighthouse Shelter, Methodist Children’s Home, Family Promise, Boy’s Ranch, Red Bird Mission, and others. A new mission added in 2013 was the Betty Repogle Scholarship for LUMC students and in 2016 the Steagall Foundation Scholarship for seminary students. They also support “The Clothes Closet” project in Foley with volunteers.

Prayer for the Day

By Mary Stewart (written in 1904)

Presented to the LUMW by Joy Lillie, May 4, 2015

Keep us, O God, from pettiness;  Let us be large in thought, in work, in deed.  May we put away all pretense and meet each other face to face without self-pity and without prejudice.  May we never be hasty in judgement and always generous.  Let us take time for all things;  Make us to grow calm, serene, gentle.  Teach us to put into action our better impulses, straight-forward and unafraid.  Grant that we may realize that it is the little things that create differences, that in the big things of life we are at one.  And may we strive to touch and to know the great human heart of all of us, and O Lord God, let us forget not, to be kind.  Amen
