2021 Theme: Knitted Together for God's Good Work
Purpose

The organized unit of United Methodist Women shall be a community of women whose purpose it 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 Emblem

The emblem for United Methodist Women affirms our continuity as women organized for mission. Its symbolism affirms our continuous growth and renewal.

The emblem for United Methodist Women, as well as that for the church, combines the cross and a flame symbolizing the Holy Spirit. The cross and flame are ancient symbols of the church, dating back to the days of Christ and Pentecost. Each evokes images of sacrifice, witness and service. Both remind us of the opportunities and obligations of discipleship. Paul's ancient words to Timothy have fresh and contemporary meaning: "...I now remind you to stir into flame, the gift of God which is within you..." (II Timothy 1:6 NEB)

As part of the emblem for the United Methodist Women, these symbols remind us of our purpose of helping women to grow as persons in community in their understanding of, and willingness to participate in, the global community of the church. They also remind us of our heritage—women who pioneered in service for the church at home, abroad, in organization of women for mission service, and support in many areas of need.

The shape of the emblem is likewise symbolic. It is fluid and free flowing, suggesting change and mobility. As organized groups of women, this has been our heritage—often at the forefront of movements for change, at times supporting projects initiated by others, but always aware of the times and striving to move with them rather than be overwhelmed by them.

The cross, the flame, the individual with her abilities and opportunities—all are elements of a 21st century movement for United Methodist Women.
