Zion United Women in Faith (UWF)
United Women in Faith 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.
United Women of Faith of the United Methodist Church has a 150-year legacy that continues today as 500,000 United Methodist women come together in their local churches to continue their good work of equipping women in the way of Jesus through education, worship, prayer, and outreach in the community.
UWF is very connectional, with a national office; regional, conference and district organizations; and the local units that gather in their churches.
Zion UWF has two circles (totaling about 30 members) that meet on eight Wednesdays during the year. The Night Circle meets the second Wednesday at 5:30 pm and the Day Circle meets the third Wednesday 10:30 am. Both meet in our Christian Life Center (CLC). Then twice each year, the two circles enjoy combined activities - once in July and again in December.
Our Zion UWF is very mission-minded, and actively involved in a variety of outreach efforts, including: serving meals at the Mercy Center on a quarterly basis, Clean Start monthly donations, Helping Hands in Clemson, Charter for Racial Justice for Children, Care Bear ministry at Christmas, Hygiene kits for UMCOR emergencies and Legislative Day (Advocacy for the needy).
Additionally, UWF members are involved in the UWF Reading Program and are guided by the UWF Response magazine.
