United Methodist Women

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.

Membership in Red Bank UMW is open to all women of the congregation.

Check the Inlook and Outlook for meeting dates and times or talk to any UMW member. UMW plans several Retreat opportunities each year in which we encourage all interested women to participate. The Retreats are usually held on Saturdays (one in the spring and one in the fall) and involve special Leaders.
