United Methodist Women (UMW)

Central United Methodist Women are Women United in Service, Fellowship and Spiritual Reflection -- a group of ordinary women doing extraordinary things. We emphasize mission in all that we do.  Our activities range from local service to global concerns. At Central, we support our youth, assist with 'JOY Seniors' luncheons, and deliver 'Meals on Wheels'. We support groups in Florence such as House of Hope and the Pee Dee Coalition. The Wallace Family Life Center and Bethlehem Centers are state UMW missions. We also contribute to other ministries throughout the nation and world.

Our Purpose:

  • To know God
  • To experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ
  • To develop creative, supportive fellowship
  • To expand concepts of mission
