The mission of the BUMC Women's Ministry is to nurture, encourage, and equip women to faithfully and fully use their God-given gifts to glorify God.
We are here to support women of all ages in their relationship with God so that through spiritual friendships, mentoring, modeling, and teaching one another, we might experience the freedom to become all that God intends us to be. We offer women of all ages quality opportunities for personal growth and ministry.
Whether you are looking to delve deep into a study, make new friends through time in fellowship, or feel called to lead or serve others in this community, we can help you get started!
