World Thank Offering

Each year, in November, the UWF has the opportunity to show their gratitude for God’s blessings through the World Thank Offering. We bring many requests to God for our health, healing, and hope in our lives and in the lives of those we pray for. We’re uplifted by the Lord’s breathtaking moments and His promises. In some places of sadness, loss and disappointment, there will again be “the voices of those who sing, as they bring thank offerings to the house of the Lord”, Jer 33:11. Haven’t our prayers been answered so many times? Since we are so grateful, we will express our thanks and praise and monetary gifts to share in God’s blessings for others. Janette Yoh, VA Conference Social Action Coordinator, will bring us our program; life-giving creation and transformation with Scripture speaking to us. We’ve changed, but we will always show up, take action and get the job done for those who need our help. We invite ALL women to join us for this loving fellowship and program. God’s blessings on each of you!



United Methodist Women has changed its name. We are now "United Women in Faith." It's a good change and a good name. It may cause us to make adjustments that seem awkward and uncomfortable, so just know that it will work. Taking over five years to come to fruition, it will bring new programs, resources, outreach, and innovations that will enhance our work. Our purpose will remain the same as the core of our labors.

All women of the church and community are welcome to join us and be a part of this new exciting way of our missions! This modification will enable women around the world to share our sisterhood with the new website.

Our UWF bulletin board has been updated and new information will be added as it comes out. Remember, women like you pave the way for women, youth, and children to be leaders and thrive. May our Lord bless you in miraculous ways. Visit www.uwfaith.org.


The purpose of the United Women in Faith 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 missions through participation in the global ministries of the church.



Chestnut Memorial has had a rich history of women working together in the name of Jesus Christ through United Methodist Women. Our members work and advocate for the voiceless, mentally challenged, and much more, with a particular emphasis on supporting women, children, and youth. Our world is our mission field and we promote growth and renewal in a relationship with Christ.
