© Christ United Methodist Church 2012 About us Christ United Methodist Church's UMW unit is part of a one million member organization - the UNITED METHODIST WOMEN.  We are a community of women whose purpose is to know God; to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative fellowship, and to participate in the global ministries of the church.   As United Methodist Women, we want to share our gift of God with others through fellowship and mission work.  The UMW logo, the Cross and the Flame, symbolizes our organization's duty to pass this flame to others.   "...I now remind you to stir into flame the gift of God which is with you..." (II Timothy 1:6) Circles are small groups of women who share common interests and come together for mission work, devotions, short-term bible study or other mission-related activities.
