United Methodist Women, like The United Methodist Church, is a connectional system. The major links of United Methodist Women are:
- The local group or “Unit” – UMW of The Heart
- The district organization – Peaks and Plains District
- The conference organization – Rocky Mountain Conference
- The jurisdiction organization – Western Jurisdiction
- The national office – in New York
All of these groups relate to one another in a variety of ways; each group is empowered to structure itself in ways that fulfill the PURPOSE, best use the gifts of its members and meet the needs of its community in the world. Every level of the organization is connected in mission with Global Ministries.
Our PURPOSE ~ 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 mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.
