United Methodist Women

According to paragraph 256.5 of the 2016 Discipline, "In every local church there shall be an organized unit of United Methodist Women."  The Griffin District has an active group of ladies involved in UMW; however, they are always looking to expand.  If your church does not have an organized UMW group, please contact one of the district officers listed below for information on how to start a unit.
