Dunwoody UMC has a very active women’s ministry that spans all age groups and interests. Our groups welcome women who want to broaden their faith, make new friends, connect with like-minded women and participate in service projects. From small groups to banquets with guest speakers, there’s something for every woman at DUMC.

United Methodist Women

What Is United Methodist Women?

We are a supportive, inclusive Christian membership organization for women to grow spiritually and work to create a world in which all women, children and youth thrive.

What We Do

Our membership runs between 275-300 ladies who meet monthly September – May. We are organized into 8 different circles representing all age groups. Each group is known as a “Circle” and meets monthly to engage in fellowship, mission work, Bible study and fun. We invite speakers on various topics and work on service projects like feeding the homeless, donating time and materials to community charities, working on global mission projects, participating in Bible studies and providing support to members who are sick, grieving, having babies and much more.

UMW Missions

In 2020, Dunwoody UMW was recognized by the North GA Conference as a Goal of Excellence Unit and a Five Star Giving Unit. We also gave over $6000 in 2020 to national UMW Missions through our pledge drive. Because of our members’ generosity, we were able to donate the following in 2020: click here to view.
