United Methodist Women
United Methodist Women 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 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.
Wesley United Methodist Women’s Ministry provides an opportunity for fellowship, support, and outreach. We are a part of the Northern Illinois Conference United Methodist Women and are active participants of conference wide and district programming.

Scope of Organization’s Work
The work of United Methodist Women is mission, which includes advocacy and service. As United Methodist Women members give voice to the unheard, raise up women leaders through education and leadership development, and perform in acts of service, they are engaged in mission. This has been the driving force since the organization’s creation.
United Methodist Women members join in God’s mission as they are transformed by their relationship with God through prayer, study and the empowering of the Holy Spirit. They equip themselves for mission through education and leadership training, learn about and raise awareness of justice issues and engage in service and advocacy on behalf of women, children and youth in the United States and around the world.
