United Methodist Women (UMW) is a community of women whose purpose is to know God, to experience freedom through Jesus Christ, to develop a creative, supportive fellowship and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the Church.

We invite all ladies to attend a UMW meeting.  You do not need to be a “Member” of the UMW or one of our churches. ALL women are welcome!!  Check out the Calendar to find out what we have planned and where we will be meeting.

SisterswithaPURPOSEDansville: The Dansville ladies get together on the first Wednesday of each month to experience fellowship, a business meeting, an enjoyable program and refreshments.  Some activities of the Dansville UMW include movie nights, Christmas Brunch, Lenten Call to Prayer and Self-Denial, sponsoring a church luncheon, planning and participating in a UMW church service, attending the District Communion breakfast, working on crafts and other activities designed just for us women.

Sparta Center: The ladies of the Sparta Center UMW get together on the last Wednesday of the month (except for November and December).  Meetings include a guest speaker, business meeting and refreshments and are held either at the church or in a member’s home.  Some special events include:

  • Enjoying a picnic with a white elephant auction
  • Going out to supper together
  • Sponsoring Church dinners… Chicken BBQ in the spring and a Roast Beef dinner in the fall.  We are known for our pies!!
  • Giving to charities – Our list of charities in the past includes the Dansville Ecumenical Community Food Pantry, Habitat for Humanity, Chances and Changes, Theresa House in Geneseo, St. Vincent House in Wayland, American Bible Society, Cattaraugus African Missions Outreach, Focus on the Children, Backpack Program, Red Bird Missions, Gateway House and others.
