United Methodist Women

Through varied programs, fellowship, and support of global and local ministries, the Tonganoxie United Methodist Women (UMW) seek to fulfill our purpose: 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. The Tonganoxie United Methodist Women meet the first Thursday of each month at 1:30pm in the church parlor (upstairs on the south side of the hall).

We invite all women to attend our meetings. You will receive a warm welcome. Please call Sally Maack, President, at (913) 417-7004 for additional information.

Church Leadership

As we work to be a community of faith inviting all to know God’s love, connecting with each other, growing in our faith, and serving our community and the world it takes a strong team of leadership to make it all happen. If you have any questions about ministry at Tonganoxie United Methodist Church the persons listed below should be able to help answer them or point you toward the person who can.

According to the United Methodist Book of Discipline (par. 252), “the church council shall provide for planning and implementing a program of nurture, outreach, witness, and resources in the local church. It shall also provide for the administration of its organization and temporal life. It shall envision, plan, implement, and annually evaluate the mission and ministry of the church. The church council shall be amenable to and function as the administrative agency of the charge conference.”
