Our Logo

The cross and flame are ancient symbols of the church and appear on The United Methodist Church emblem. The cross reminds us to follow in the steps of Jesus in our lives. The flame originates from Pentecost and resonates- even today - in Paul's words to Timothy:
"I remind you to stir into flame the gift of God which is within you." - 2 Timothy 1:6
As United Methodist Women, we give our gift of God with others through mission.

Our emblems reminds us of our PURPOSE of growing in our understanding of and willingness to participate in the global ministries of the church. The overall fluid and free flowing shape of the emblem suggests change and mobility. Our foremothers were advocates for change; change and growth continue to be at the heart of United Methodist Women's sisterhood and mission.
