United Methodist Women:
Faith • Hope • Love in Action

We are women with a Purpose!

“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.”

–Excerpt from the United Methodist Women Homepage @

And we the women of Garden Grove United Methodist Church have pledged ourselves to carry out the mission of the national UMW with joy and commitment to service in our hearts because, although we are few in number, we are part of very large collective effort that is making a significant impact on global relief and other issues–and it’s all dependent on hundreds of little groups, just like ours, throughout the nation, working to grow the body of Christ.
