Women’s Retreat is March 24-26, 2017

A Special Invitation

You are invited to participate in the activities of St. Mark’s United Methodist Women. Any woman may choose to belong whether she is a member of the United Methodist Church or not. It is a voluntary relationship of women who wish to be organized for mission. It is an opportunity to get acquainted with other women. It is an opportunity to support each other.

Participate in the UMW Reading Program

For 140 years, members of United Methodist Women and predecessor organizations have been involved in mission that includes prayer, study and action. The Reading Program is a study opportunity, but it should also lead to action. Click here to learn more!

About United Methodist Women
