Welcome to Leesburg United Methodist Women!

United Methodist Women is the largest denominational faith organization for women with approximately 800,000 members around the world whose mission is fostering spiritual growth, developing leaders and advocating for justice.

Our Leesburg United Methodist Women unit is comprised of multiple small groups or “circles” that vary in size from six to over twenty members. Each small group meets monthly to engage in work toward the United Methodist Women purpose. Meetings generally include devotionals, response moment sharing, a program, prayer calendar and concerns, mission planning/activities, support and fellowship. We are organized to support local and worldwide mission.

United Methodist Women 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 supportive fellowship and
  • To expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.

Women members of Leesburg United Methodist Church are not “automatically” members of United Methodist Women and members of the United Methodist Women are not required to be members of the United Methodist Church. Membership in the Leesburg United Methodist Women is open to any woman who indicates her desire to belong, and to participate in support of the purpose.
