united women IN FAITH

Membership in the Hinsdale United Women in Faith (HUWF) is open to all women interested in fellowship and Christ’s call to mission. HUWF enjoys an active unit of over seventy 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 UWF by making a pledge and helping with overall activities.

HUWF supports mission efforts locally and worldwide through personal pledges and special events like the Fall Trunk Treasures, and Gift Card Sales

Fellowship activities like the UWF 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:

  1. To know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ;
  2. To develop a creative, supportive fellowship;
  3. To expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.

Truck Treasures Sale


‘Trunk Treasures’ is a large community garage sale with vendors selling treasures in the HUMC parking lot. Vendors park in one space and sell their wares such as toys, clothes, collectibles, crafts, furniture, housewares, antiques, flea market finds and more! It’s a junker’s heaven! An additional space next to you may be purchased. The profits from Trunk Treasures Sale helps to support the ministry and mission of Hinsdale UMC's United Women in Faith.

This event is also perfect for antique shop owners wanting to unload some of their items, or shop for items to go back into their shops. This is a rain or shine event. If you have any questions, please call Karen Tate, UMF President at 630-294-0953.



Circles meet the second Thursday of the month September through May.  All women are encouraged to join one of our three circle groups:

Lydia Circle – Named for a Christian business woman. Meets at 7:00 p.m. in members’ homes for a business meeting and program followed by dessert.
