umwlogofix2The organized unit of United Methodist Women is 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.

We have two circles which meet at various times during the month for fellowship and programs. All circles combine for business meetings, for special programs, for our annual Christmas luncheon, and for other activities. We provide lunch, a devotion and other activities at the Edwards Street Fellowship Center in Hattiesburg. We support numerous programs in our own church. Our members participate in District and Conference activities as well as local ones. We support missions on a global, national, and local level. Our Food Fest, which is held annually on Election Day, provides funds to enable us to extend our mission support to a larger extent.

We welcome all women to come and be a part of the United Methodist Women at Laurel First.
