The UMW is an international group of women whose focus is on women, children, and youth. Our local UMW at Martinsville First UMC meets at 6:30 on the third Monday each month at the church. We would encourage every woman in the church who is interested in helping us with our focus on women, children, and youth to come and help us reach our goals. All our fundraisers go to helping these groups to make their lives better and to show god’s love through our support. The district and conference levels of the UMW offer conferences and meetings to help us prepare ourselves to reach out to the less fortunate. They offer retreats such as the spiritual and silent retreats to prepare our hearts to help others so we can walk closer to God.

This year we are celebrating our 150th anniversary of the organization of United Methodist Women. We are the largest organization of women making a difference for women, children, and youth. For any please contact our UMW president, Sandy Hatcher, through the church office, or any other member
