BUMC Women

The mission of BUMC Women is to nurture, encourage, and equip women to faithfully and fully use their God-given gifts to glorify God. We offer opportunities for friendship, mentoring, and personal growth through women's studies, United Methodist Women, Moms at BUMC programs, and other events throughout the year.
