All women are welcome to take part in the activities of the United Methodist Women.
The Purpose of the United Methodist Women
The United Methodist Women is a community of women whose purpose is to know God and experience freedom as a whole person through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative, supportive fellowship; to reach out serve our community; and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.
Monthly Meetings are held, during the school year, on the first Saturday at 9:00am in fellowship hall. After breakfast we will have a program followed by a short business meeting.
The Mission and Education tour is a project of the United Methodist Women of the Kansas West Conference. The Kansas West Conference is the only conference of the United Methodist Church that offers this tour.
The Kansas METour is a 10-day tour, for young women ages 15-22, that visits a variety of mission agencies, institutions, and schools, which are sponsored, by the United Methodist Women and the United Methodist Church. The purposes of this tour are to:

- To acquaint young women with opportunities for church-related occupations.
- To provide for spiritual growth through worship, singing, association with staff and members of the tour.
- To encourage fellowship and fun.
- To provide an opportunity for becoming acquainted with dedicated persons who are working in missions.
