The organized unit of 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.
Smyrna First has three UMW subgroups which meet once a month:
- Mary Martha Subgroup meets September through June on the second Tuesday at 10:30 AM in Room A107
- Willing Workers Subgroup meets September through June on the second Tuesday at 7:00 PM in Room A107
- Shirley Stewart Subgroup meets year-round on the third Thursday at 7:30 PM in members’ homes
Six times each year at the UMW General Meetings, these three Subgroups come together to share events, activities and fellowship. They are also involved in events throughout the year for the Atlanta-Marietta District UMW and the North GA Conference UMW.
