United Methodist Women


The organized unit of United Methodist Women shall be a community of women whose purpose is:

  • To know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ.
  • To develop a creative supportive fellowship.
  • To expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.
The United Methodist Women of Clarksbury UMC are active in mission and in raising funds for mission. The Edna Yankovich Circle meets on the second Tuesday of the month at 7:00pm. Be sure to check the calendar for meeting place.
What do United Methodist Women do? In one word: mission. How does the UMW at Clarksbury do mission? Through many events and fundraisers. Here at Clarksbury, they make chocolate-covered easter eggs to raise money for local missions. All the proceeds from this major fundraiser go to support:
Hands Across Middlesex
Northern Neck Free Clinic
Healing Eagle Clinic
Christmas Friends
Family Services
YMCA Guardian Program
RDYC scholarship
…along with our fall and winter food pantry.
The ladies also participate in our annual Lenten lunch program; they get together to do Thanksgiving projects for our homebound members and they participate in wrapping Christmas gifts for the Christmas Friends program in Middlesex County.
There is plenty to do and enough to go around for everyone. No requirements to join, only a desire to honor God through the Greatest Commandment to love God and our neighbor!
