Women’s Ministry at MPUMC

All women across the church are invited to connect and be in shared ministry with one another. These ministry initiatives welcome all women, anyone who identifies as a woman, or someone who connects with the ministry offerings.

Women’s Ministry at Myers Park UMC is ever-evolving and includes offerings such as our Annual Women’s Retreat, small groups, traditional United Methodist Women’s circles, and moms groups. If you would like to learn more or are interested in starting a new women’s initiative, email Rev. Jessica Dayson at jdayson@mpumc.org.
