The UMW Reading Program encourages members to think critically about current issues through an annual selection of member-reviewed books. It offers an excellent opportunity to deepen your spirituality and to broaden your understanding of our mission work. 


The Reading Program is a study opportunity, but it should also lead to action. The purpose of the program is to encourage United Methodist Women members to:


  • Expand understanding of, and participation in, God’s mission.

  • Increase sensitivity to all human beings—their needs, interests and concerns.

  • Encourage critical thinking about issues facing humanity today.

  • Grow in understanding of Scripture as it relates to Christian faith in contemporary life.

  • Enhance self-knowledge and act from that knowledge.

  • Strengthen involvement in local and global Christian mission.
