Together we can make a difference

United Methodist Women of Marble Falls is not a "members only" club, all women are invited to the monthly gatherings & small groups.

The UMW is an active group of women serving our church, community, and world. Currently there are two circles that meet during the day once a month, in addition to the monthly women's gathering which is open to all members and women of Marble Falls.

United Methodist Women is now United Women in Faith. The organization announced the new operating name in the March-April edition of response, its bimonthly magazine for members, and launched the rebrand with a new website and Facebook event March 3, 2022.

The changes are designed to address the different needs and life stages of current members and new women and expand options for membership and engagement. The new name also aims to welcome current members whose local churches may choose to disaffiliate from The United Methodist Church as well as women of other faith traditions who want to join.

The United Methodist Women of Marble Falls is an active group of women serving our church, community, and world. Currently there are two circles that meet during the day once a month, in addition to the monthly general meeting which is attended by all members.

 

There is interest in forming an additional circle to meet in the evening. This circle would provide a chance for women who are working outside the home to be involved in the activities of UMW. Please let Vee Brown know if you are interested in joining an evening circle and which day of the week would be best for you.
