United Methodist Women.

St. Andrew’s United Methodist Women (UMW) is a vibrant group of women which meets on the first Thursday of each month, September through May at 7:30 PM in the fellowship hall.

 

Our purpose: 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.
