Purpose of United Women in Faith (formerly the UMW)

The organized unit of United Women in Faith 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.

UWF Cookbook: Get out your recipes and be ready! Our group is creating a custom cookbook featuring favorite recipes from our entire church membership. These cookbooks will be professionally published and are sure to be a treasured keepsake for us all. Money raised will be used for Missions supported by the SGUMF. Find your favorite recipes and look for additional information soon!
