United Methodist Women at St John’s

Our Beginning . . .

March 23rd is the day in 1869 when a small group of women braved a legendary torrential rain to gather at Tremont Methodist Episcopal Church in Boston, Massachusetts, and organized for mission. The women established the Woman’s Foreign Missionary Society, a predecessor of United Methodist Women, and galvanized women around the county to raise money to send a doctor, Clara Swain, and teacher, Isabella Thoburn, to India as missionaries to serve the women of that nation.

Our Vision . . .

Turning faith, hope and love into action on behalf of women, children, and youth around the world.

Our Purpose . . .

The organized unit of United Methodist Women shall be a community of women whose purpose is to know God and to 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.

Visitors are always welcome!
