The Oconee Street Unit of the United Methodist Women embraces, affirms and celebrates all persons of every gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, race, ethnicity, color, immigration status, marital status, physical and mental ability, educational level, and economic status, regardless of struggles with addiction and/or involvement with the legal system. We welcome all who would join us in the United Methodist Women’s purpose of becoming community to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ; developing a creative, supportive fellowship; and expanding concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.
Founded by eight women in 1869, the UMW supports programs to educate and empower women around the globe, while protecting vulnerable children.
The entire program and organization of United Methodist Women focuses on mission, which includes:
- Providing opportunities to grow spiritually
- Equipping women and girls to be leaders
- Providing transformative educational experiences
- Organizing for growth and flexibility
- Working for justice through service and advocacy
Oconee Street women gather once a month to eat, visit, conduct business and study together. Contact Carter Vest at firstname.lastname@example.org for meeting times.
