United Methodist Women

The UMW remained active throughout the pandemic closure using virtual meetings and email communication until in-person meetings have now resumed. Contact Debbie Dowling if you would like to get involved.


We have active United Methodist Women (UMW) and United Methodist Men (UMM) units that welcome your participation. Both meet monthly and are involved in activities throughout the month and support local charities.

The UMM and UMW also coordinate and support each other. Both are wonderful small group opportunities to build meaningful relationships in Christian love and commitment.

The Vision of United Methodist Women

Turning faith, hope, and love into action on behalf of women, children, and youth around the world.

Active Church Wide Initiatives

Throughout the year the UMW coordinates several church-wide initiatives.  They will be announced as they occur.

More About UMW at Prospect and Beyond

At Prospect, we meet monthly -- the 4th Monday of the month at 10:00 AM -- with themed programs. In addition to the monthly meeting, the UMW enjoys lunch together, visits shut-ins, hosts an ice cream social in the summer and sponsors the Mothers' Day and Fathers' Day song service tribute as their major fundraiser. We are proud of our UMW unit at Prospect and would like to see it expand.  Please join us!
