United Women in Faith
We believe love in action can change the world! We’re a sisterhood acting in faith to tackle the hard work of the world without hesitation. Driven by God’s love and united in sisterhood, we work to improve the lives of women, children and youth. Every day, we show up. We take action. We get it done. And we invite you to join us.
UWF is still relevant after 150 years (and various name changes) because we continue to make necessary changes to further connect spiritual women to act boldly for justice and transform communities. That will not change.
UWF at FUMCR provides support for the needs of women and children in our congregation and our local community as well as financially supports UWF nationally and internationally through monthly circle meetings, semi-annual unit meetings, and semi-annual project parties.

Let UWF Help You Celebrate at FUMCR
Our volunteers will set up, serve, replenish food and drinks, and clean up when the event is over. Your donation will fund missions for the United Methodist Church through United Women In Faith. Contact Glenda Hanks (firstname.lastname@example.org) for information on how we can help you host a celebration and enjoy the party as well.
UWF Reading Program
A cherished tradition, members explore, share, and discuss meaningful books from five categories: Education for Mission, Leadership Development, Nurturing for Community, Social Action, and Spiritual Growth.
Congregation members of all ages and reading levels may take advantage of self-checkout from the UWF Book Nook, located up the stairs from Shawver Welcome Center.
