For Women

Women at the Gate

Imagine connecting with other women on the journey of knowing, loving and serving God.  Women can enjoy mutual support, accountability and friendship — along with
opportunities to connect with other women on their faith journey.

Small groups, studies and events are available where women can get to know God and follow Jesus, develop a supportive and encouraging network and work toward making the world a better place.

Special events include catered lunch meetings, Saturday morning breakfast programs, retreats and fundraising projects for missions.  Details are announced before each event.


Women at the Gate, our Aldersgate United Methodist Women’s unit, serves as the model to create opportunities at Aldersgate, as well as to bring women together in an organization of approximately 800,000 members from United Methodist churches all across the world, and especially within the Great Plains Conference United Methodist Women.  Participate in a small group to grow in faith, hope and love in action as part of Women at the Gate.
