The organized unit of United Methodist Women 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.
The official emblem for United Methodist Women as well as for the United Methodist Church combines the cross and flame. The cross and flame are ancient symbols of Christ and Pentecost. The shape of the emblem is fluid and free flowing, suggesting change and mobility. Our heritage is one of sacrifice, witness and service. The emblem serves as a continuing reminder of both opportunity and obligation.
