Membership in the Hinsdale United Methodist Women (HUMW) is open to all women interested in fellowship and Christ’s call to mission. HUMW enjoys an active unit of over one hundred women who meet regularly through small groups called circles. Circle members develop close relationships with each other, praying for and nurturing each other. Women may also be general members. These women collectively support UMW by making a pledge and helping with overall activities.
HUMW supports mission efforts locally and worldwide through personal pledges and special events like the Fall Resale and Gift Card Sales.
Fellowship activities like the UMW Sunday All-Church Potluck Lunch, Lenten Brunch, and Graduation Reception help members to fulfill the stated purpose of membership, which is to be a community of women whose purpose is threefold:
- 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.
