We Are United Women In Faith
We connect and nurture women through Christian spiritual formation, leadership development, creative fellowship, and education so that they can inspire, influence and impact local and global communities.
About United Women in Faith and its Logo
United Methodist Women is now United Women in Faith! The move is part of a refreshing of the organization that includes a new logo and an array of new and improved programs to nurture current members and welcome new women to join to put their love in action on behalf of women, children, and youth.
Our new logo represents the past, present, and future of our organization. The symbol refers to our Christian roots. The multicolored pieces of the cross coming together represent the diversity we aim for and the inward and outward reflection we engage in as women of faith. The typography is solid, modern, and bold, showcasing our power to support the causes in which we invest.
United Women in Faith Circles
at Bluff Park United Methodist Church
The women of the Compassion Circle are mostly working outside of the home so they do not have regular monthly meetings. They participate in local and international mission projects, including mission trips to Chile and preparing flood buckets for disaster relief through the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR). The Compassion Circle participates in yearly UMC studies and participates nine months of the year in local, hands-on mission projects including the Food Pantry, Bundles of Hope Diaper Bank, meals at the First Light Shelter, meals for the residents of the Promise Home, and other ministries and missions as needed. The women of the Compassion Circle also bake and volunteer for the Bluff Park Art Show and Bargains on the Bluff Consignment Sale in order to raise funds for missions.
The women in the Joy Circle are faithful disciples of Jesus Christ in heart, soul, and spirit. This circle strives to STUDY and then DO the mission work of Jesus Christ. Nine months of the year, they meet once a month in the Chapel hearing speakers share current issues such as domestic violence, human trafficking, grief, social justice, and more.
During all months of the year, members of the Joy Circle are busy being the hands and feet of Jesus Christ…meeting the needs of the church’s Food Pantry, providing healthy meals at shelters across the greater Birmingham area, packing gift boxes for children overseas, providing diapers to families in need, visiting residents of the Promise Home, and participating in mission projects such as “Rise Against Hunger.” In addition, the Joy Circle enjoys fellowship in order to build community.
Jesus said, “I assure you that when you have done it for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you have done it for me.” ~ Matthew 25:40
