Walnut Creek United Women in Faith [Formerly United Methodist Women]
United Methodist Women has a new name for the same vision and mission. It is United Women in Faith!
We've taken a name to better reflect how we answer our calling today. It's an exhilarating time, as we commit to greater inclusivity, action, and impact. We remain women of passion and power, united by God's love in our mission to help women, children, and youth.
The organized unit of United Women in Faith 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 seek to connect and nurture women through Christian spiritual formation, leadership development, creative fellowship and education so that they can inspire, influence and impact local and global communities
We are a powerful, fearless force driven by God’s love and united in sisterhood. With a focus on women, children and youth, we act for justice and transform communities.
We face the realities we see in the world, even when they are not the ones we would like to see. However, our goal is not to bear witness simply to harms but also to God’s love by acting boldly to change those harms.
Bold action, like faith, takes courage. Our bravery is inspired by God’s love and our powerful commitment to improve the lives of women, children and youth. United Women in Faith works for justice through compassionate service and advocacy to change unfair policies and systems that harm women, children and youth--from racial and gender injustice to economic inequality, climate issues and more.
