United Methodist Women

UMW is a community of women whose purpose is: To know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ, to develop a creative and supportive fellowship, and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the Church. 


We have several "circles" that meet monthly to discuss their community outreach programs, such as collecting eye glasses for mission trips, collecting empty prescription bottles for the free clinic, providing box tops to support local schools, and provide financial support to Camp Sumatanga and Downtown Rescue Mission, among many others.


Latham's UMW gives over $12,000 annually to missions and has collected over $360,000 since 1981!
