Chapin UMW is a community of women whose purpose is to know God and 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 UMW Circles.
Membership in Chapin UMW is open to all women and new members are welcome anytime. Our organization exists to deepen each member's spiritual life and to lend support and leadership to Chapin United Methodist Church.
We share in a community of over one million women across the country and all over the world who are organized for mission. We are challenged to grow spiritually, intellectually and personally. We nurture and encourage one another in our spiritual growth and personal development through Circles that meet monthly and through local, district, and conference events. Overall coordination of Chapin UMW activities is accomplished through an Executive Committee comprised of Circle leaders, committee chairpersons, and elected officers. Participation in this group of committed women is a unique opportunity, and we would love to have you join us!
All Circles meet monthly for fellowship, devotions, and mission work. All women of the church are invited and encouraged to attend General Meetings even if not actively participating in a Circle.
