Women

Deepen your faith, connect in fellowship, grow in grace, and reach out in mission.
Troy United Methodist Women support many different missions, local and abroad. Women engage in missions in several ways: volunteering on-site, fundraising for charities, and other programs and activities.
To participate in any of these opportunities, please contact Bethel Rogers.
