North Raleigh United Methodist Women


 United Methodist Women of North Raleigh United Methodist Church are committed to the growth, education, and empowerment of women within the church, in the local community, and across the globe.

UMW Purpose

The organized unit of 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.

How We Grow

We grow personally and spiritually through service, mentorship, mission studies, and by expanding our understanding via the UMW’s annual reading program.

We grow as an organization through the ideas, skills, and talents of our membership.  NRUMW encourages members to volunteer their unique gifts to:

  • Leadership, administrative, committee, and coordinator positions
  • Fundraising activities
  • Mission-related service projects

But what is priceless and cannot be measured, is the way we grow together — developing friendships that last a lifetime

How We Serve

From its beginning, United Methodist Women have focused on ministries involving women, children, and youth.  More specifically, the UMW mission initiatives focus on:
  • Providing opportunities to grow spiritually
  • Equipping women & girls to be leaders
  • Providing transformative educational experiences
  • Organizing for growth & flexibility
  • Working for justice through service & advocacy

Using these initiatives, North Raleigh UMW identify and support local, national, and international missions through hands-on service projects, fund-raising activities, and the pledge-giving of members.  

How We’re Organized

North Raleigh UMW has a membership of 200+ women; and a slate of officers is inducted each year.  The North Raleigh unit organizes annual events in which all members can participate.


Most members belong to one of the seven established circles, some of which meet during the day and some with evening hours.  Circles meet monthly, some taking a break during summer months; and each has leadership who guide the meetings.

At-Large Members

UMW Members who have not yet joined a circle, or may not be in a position to do so, belong to the membership At-Large and can participate in any aspect of the UMW — volunteering for committees or participating in service projects, fellowship or fund-raising events, pledge-giving for outreach missions, and the Reading Program.  At-Large members receive a monthly newsletter to stay abreast of UMW events and opportunities.
