The Women’s Ministry at Chapin UMC exists to help connect women to the saving love of Jesus.  We want to help you grow in your faith while equipping each other to share our faith with others!

  • if Gathering

    Due to the guidelines from the CDC, the IF:Gathering scheduled for this Saturday, March 21st is postponed. Please know that this decision was not made lightly or rashly. Much prayer went into this decision and it is for the protection of all of us. We WILL reschedule! We do not have the new date yet, but more than likely it will be sometime this fall. As soon as we have the new date we will announce it. If you are unable to attend the rescheduled date, we will be issuing refunds, so please stay tuned. There is power in individual prayer but there is even more power in prayer together, so lets take the time to pray together next Saturday, March 21st at 9am, which was the time the event had been scheduled to start. Thank you for your understanding!

    At IF:Gathering 2020 we are going to focus completely and entirely on the person of Jesus. That’s it. He is our hope! The world is spinning like crazy and for one day we are going to come together, turn off the noise, get in the Word, experience powerful teaching, dive into authentic conversations, worship Jesus, and hear stories that will compel you to take your next steps towards life and peace!

    IF:Gathering exists to equip women with gospel-centered resources, events, and community so that they may learn about who God is and disciple other women right where they are.

  • United Methodist Women

    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.

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.
