For more than 150 years, the United Methodist Women has been 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. Across the country, members “put faith into action” by raising up to $20 million every year for projects related to women, children, and youth in more than 100 countries around the world.
St. Luke’s women have been serving in some form since the church begin meeting in 1889 with the women of the church sewing bonnets and aprons to pay for the new minister’s room and board. In 1905, the women began to reach out to the world and a Foreign Missionary Society was formed. That began their history of service in both foreign and local missions. It wasn’t until 1972, that the various women’s organizations united together and became the St. Luke’s United Methodist Women. The UMW came into being as a missionary organization and this continues to be their purpose.
