The Purpose of United Methodist Women

History of United Methodist Women
That the Woman’s Foreign Mission Society was formed in Boston in 1869! And, that we know the Brockport church had a local society in January, 1917 (the minutes for this meeting refer to it as a regular meeting); however, we have no earlier written records. These women met monthly with speakers, programs, and devotional time. They raised money for missionaries in India, Liberia and helped to support two orphans in France and often made payments to purchase a bundle of supplies for medical mission work. Their gifts of one cent per day to their mite-boxes, their participation with the other women in the Rochester area and their money raising projects were supported by many devoted women.

BUMC Zipporah women’s group


Zipporah is a group of Christian women of all ages who meet once a month to support each other in faith and fellowship.  We share joys and concerns and lift each other up in prayer.  Our goal is to support each other and BUMC as God leads us.  This is a no stress/no Commitment group.


A few of our special projects include:
Support local families who are in need during the holidays. We also perform community outreach as it comes to our attention.
Planning and running a worship service each year.
Repairing and replacing the Chrismons the church used during Advent and Christmas.
