Formerly United Methodist Women
After five years of research, United Methodist Women launched a new name – United Women in Faith – and a new identity March 3, 2022 that seeks to engage newer, younger members and adapt to the changeable circumstances of today’s world.
Leaders and staff encourage current members to embrace the changes as a natural evolution of the 150-year-plus mission organization. The announcement came on the third day of Women’s History Month.
Over its history, the women’s organization has undergone 25 name changes along with continuous adaptation of its programs and operations to meet changing times.
We seek to connect and nurture women through Christian spiritual formation, leadership development, creative fellowship and education so that they can inspire, influence and impact local and global communities.
How does CCUMC United Women of Faith support the Vision?
The CCUMC United Women of Faith support a wide variety of missions and many of our activities are close to home.
As a group, we all gather together twice a year for a lunch in the fall and a Mission Study & Coffee in the winter. Throughout the year, smaller groups gather in Circles and meet once a month. Each Circle has distinct missions and together we assist our church community to share God’s love by supporting each other through prayer and friendship.
We support annual fundraisers to financially support causes which impact women, children, youth, and food insecurity in our local community. Our annual Holiday Marketplace and Pecan Sales allow us to help fund outreach, feeding programs, and local ministries. These activities provide needed funds and also allow us to work side by side in fellowship and provide welcoming community events.
We volunteer and provide donations to local children and youth in a variety of ways. Tutors offer coaching and support at the Boys & Girls Club. We clothe needy children and assemble weekend food bags through our local schools. We donate beautiful Easter baskets and Christmas gifts through local charities including Gifts of Love.
We provide fellowship and support activities at local assisted living facilities to bring connection to residents who are limited in getting out into the community.
We provide strong support for various activities at Coronado Community UMC to provide a welcoming and safe environment for all.
