Purpose of United Methodist Women

The organized unit of United Methodist Women shall be a community of women whose PURPOSE is to know God and experience freedom as a whole person through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative, supportive fellowship; and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.

The official emblem for United Methodist Women, the cross and flame, symbolizes our organization.  The cross and flame are ancient symbols of the church and appear on The United Methodist Church emblem.  Both symbols remind us of the opportunities and obligations of discipleship.

Paul’s words to Timothy have fresh and contemporary meaning: “I now remind you to stir into flame the gift of God which is within you.”  (II Timothy 1:6).  As United Methodist Women, we share our gift with others through mission.

As parts of our emblem, the cross and flame remind us of our PURPOSE of growing in our understanding of and willingness to participate in the global ministries of the church.  They remind us of our heritage of women who pioneered in service for the church at home and in other countries.

The overall shape of the emblem is also symbolic.  Fluid and free flowing, the shape suggests change and mobility.  The women who came before us were at the forefront of movements for change.  Always aware of the times, we move with ever-changing circumstances rather than feeling overwhelmed by them.

As we have moved into another century, we remember that we are a group of Christian women with many gifts who are unified by one Spirit.  We will participate in God’s mission in all areas of life.
