United Methodist Women Invite you to membership!



The women of Church of the Good Shepherd are working to bridge the past with the present to create a stronger community of faith for people of all ages and to develop a supportive fellowship in the global ministries of the church.



“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.”


The statement above is the formal “Purpose” of the United Methodist Women, a national organization which helps women, children, and youth in the United States and in over 100 countries worldwide. UMW members throughout the country raise an estimated $18 million annually for mission projects locally and globally. Our UMW unit here at Church of the Good Shepherd does its best to live up to the “Purpose” and last year alone we raised approximately $6,000 for mission projects which included: the Chaplaincy Fund and the Bear Project at Methodist Hospital, Foothill Unity Center, David & Margaret Home, Sierra Service Project, Union Station, Elizabeth House, UMCOR, and FINCA.


All women of our church are United Methodist Women simply by being a part of this local church. And, all women are invited to attend any, and all, of the smaller UMW group meetings which offer a variety of fellowship opportunities on a weekly, monthly or annual basis as follows: 

  • The Women’s Book Study meets weekly on Wednesdays at noon in the church library. 
  • Our Crafters Group meets weekly, Wednesday evenings from 7:00-9:00 p.m. 
  • Sarah Circle also meets on the first Thursday of the month, but at 7:00 p.m. in the evening.
  • We have a general meetings four times during the year (dates are announced as the events arise). 
  • A weekend retreat is held yearly in October or November.

Thank you for your continued support of the United Methodist Women of Church of the Good Shepherd.


Joining this group of committed women is a unique opportunity - no matter who you are or where in your life you are at this moment - to move in harmony with other women who have been responding to this purpose for over 100 years.
