United Methodist Women
United Methodist Women is a mission oriented community of nearly one million women whose purposes include:
• Spiritual growth through knowing God and Jesus Christ;
• Developing a creative supportive fellowship;
• Participation in the global ministries of the church; and
• Developing and using skills for service, leadership development, and personal growth.
Small groups within the local church's UMW group participate in and support the purposes of UMW. Monthly meetings include prayer and sharing time, plus a speaker, program by a member, or an activity.
Guests and new members are always welcome.

Our UMW unit regularly supports four local missions. Each circle is assigned a local mission, and they are rotated every two years so everyone has an opportunity to learn about each organization. We support each mission in various ways and keep abreast of needs and events by having a representative on each board.
Since 1945, Dallas Bethlehem Center has provided the children of South Dallas with a nurturing environment that benefits the entire family structure by offering holistic services for each child's educational, physical, emotional, social, moral and spiritual needs. Their focus ranges from child development for ages 1-5, after-school and summer enrichment programs for ages 6-12 and a youth development program for ages 13-21. Learn More
C.C. Young is a Methodist retirement center serving those in independent living to those in full care in Dallas overlooking White Rock Lake. We host birthday parties, make lap robes and shawls. We visit residents and provide Bingo gifts for them. We support different benefits throughout the year to provide services or enhancements to the facilities. Learn More
Dallas Methodist Hospital
Our unit supports Methodist Hospital throughout the year. Our mission focuses on infants and new mothers. We donate Halloween tray favors, layette sets, shot dolls and infant eye covers (for infants under lights for jaundice). We donate red Christmas stockings and knitted white hats for the Christmas babies to be wrapped in to go home.
Wesley Rankin is a community center serving West Dallas. Our unit supports this mission throughout the year with book donations for their library, donations for school supplies and gifts for the Christmas Store Program which allows parents to shop in a store with volunteer hours they have donated at their children's schools or other community programs. Wesley Rank holds an annual benfit which provides most of the annual funding for the community center. Learn More
