 First United Met
hodist Church

  Kewanee, Illinois


Gods mission has been on the heart of women throughout history.
With faith, hope and love, women have been responding to G
ods call in their lives. 
Since its founding close to 150 years ago, we will celebrate our 150th Anniversary in 2019.
The work of the United Methodist Women is focused on the mission set for us by Jesus Christ,
 as expressed through the PURPOSE and lived out through our VISION.



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; and to expand concepts of missions through participation in global ministries of the church.


Meetings are held every second Thursday of the month except January, at 11:45am in Fellowship Hall. 
Luncheon meetings are hosted by the circles of the church.  We enjoy lunch with a business meeting following and a program.


We support mission projects local, national and around the world with our love, gifts and prayers. 
We try to support our women with fellowship in times of difficulty and loneliness.

We try to become whole women through reading, study and prayers. 
A United Methodist Woman is a link with the past, a powerful force in the present and an investment in the future.
