United Methodist Women

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

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

Purpose  |  The organized unit of United Methodist Women (UMW) 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.

We meet most months, one the first or third Thursday of the month at 10:00 a.m. in the BUMC Dining Room. The meetings vary, offering small group studies or a speaker and fellowship.  All women of the church are welcome.

Barrington United Methodist Women also sponsors a rummage sale each year. The profits from the sale go to various local organizations and, through United Methodist Women, are sent to many national and international organizations benefiting women, children, and youth.  We also make “heart pillows” for mastectomy patients at Good Shepherd Hospital and are involved in various other mission projects throughout the year.

Barrington United Methodist Women is a 2017 “5 Star Unit.” That means we have contributed monies to 5 channels of United Methodist Women giving to benefit mission with women, children and youth:

Mission Giving
World Thank Offering
A Gift to Mission
Special Mission Recognition, and
A Gift in Memory.
