Our Purpose: 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.

Farmingdale UMW is open to all women of any age with a commitment to:

  • grow in Christian faith
  • care for and support one another
  • do mission, which is God's work in the world, both locally and globally.

Some of the mission activities in which the women have been involved include:

  • The making of Health & School kits for Church World Service
  • Collection of Campbell's labels for the Henderson settlement in Kentucky
  • Christmas gifts delivered to Children's Home in Binghamton, NY- Wyoming Conference
  • The sale of CWS blankets
  • Supporting Project Linus- knitting, crocheting, quilting blankets for children in hospitals

The United Methodist Women meet several times a year for inspiring and stimulating programs and holiday celebrations. They also meet monthly in smaller groups known as circles. There are several circles that the women may choose to attend:

Gold Circle

The Gold Circle is a group of caring women dedicated to the purpose of the UMW and to church service. The Circle meets on the third Tuesday of each month at noon in the UMW room in the educational building of the church.  Their time together is a combination of study, prayer and lunch fellowship.

Martha/Mary Circle

The Martha/Mary Circle is a group of women whose emphasis is on both Christian study and service. This circle meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 7:15pm in the UMW room of the education building at the church or in member's homes. The meetings combine prayer, fellowship, and either a discussion or a project.

Paisley Circle

This circle meets on the 2nd Monday of each month at church or at a member's home. Regular meetings are at 7 pm and dinner meetings are at 6 pm. They follow the purpose of UMW by:

  • Growing as Christians through Bible study.
  • Supporting each other's concerns through topical discussions and prayer.
  • Serving the church hostessing coffee hour and volunteering to usher during the Church service.
  • Reaching out to fellow sisters within the church who are in need.
