Women’s Ministry

Our mission: To invite, nurture, and grow women in faith. We strive to create places where women will find  fellowship, encouragement, and spiritual nourishment! We believe this foundation is essential to building amazing women and a strong community of faith.

 
Bible Study/Discipleship Opportunities Women’s Bible studies are specifically geared for the needs and interests of women. Our goal is to build small groups who will choose materials based on the needs/interests of the group. If a regular Bible study is something you want, look for new studies forming throughout the year.
 

United Methodist Women The United Methodist Women is a community of women organized to know God, support each other, and participate in the global ministries of the church. They work to raise the living standards of women and children locally and around the world. The Circle meets on the fourth Tuesday of the month, 10am. The location varies.

  • Please contact Dian Crosby if interested in attending. All women are welcome.

Girls Night Out- Wednesday
April 10th, 5:30pm-8pm: Join ladies of all ages at Birmingham UMC. Special guest speaker Katherine Wolf, survivor and storyteller, advocate and evangelist! 
Register and pay online see link below. It’s $25, and includes dinner.
 
In 2008, at the age of 26, Katherine nearly died from a catastrophic brainstem stroke. Her survival and recovery have been nothing short of miraculous. Katherine and her husband Jay are in full-time ministry together through HOPE HEALS, using their story to encourage those with broken bodies, broken brains, and broken hearts. Engaging both faith-based and secular communities, they seek to bridge the gap between those disabled on the outside and those disabled on the inside with the hope that Jesus brings healing to the deepest pains we all carry.
(After you register, please let Connie Klements know, so we’ll know how many to expect. Nichole will drive a church van that holds 15 ladies, first come, first serve so reserve your seat if you want to leave from the church at 5pm.)
