United Methodist Women
The Los Altos United Methodist Women celebrates over 40 years in action, 100+ members, and seven circles, or small groups. Our affiliation with the international organization of 800,000 members offers plenty of opportunities to realize our vision: turning faith, hope, and love into action on behalf of women, children and youth around the world.
Locally, the Los Altos UMW has grown from a group of housewives seeking to make a difference, to a diverse group of working and retired women. Among our goals in 2015 is identifying the strengths and needs of women who are not members and adapting to them via changes in meeting times and structure, project-based efforts, and studies of contemporary issues such as the plight of restaurant workers, disability rights, and responses to Ferguson.
We invite interested people to help us in carrying out our purpose: knowing God, experiencing freedom as whole persons through Jesus, developing a creative, supportive fellowship, and expanding concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the Church.
