Mission & Goals
Statement of Mission
Church Women United in the USA
PURPOSE: The purpose of Church Women United is to encourage women to come together in a visible community to witness to their faith in Jesus Christ and, enabled by the Holy Spirit, to go out into every neighborhood and nation as instruments of reconciling love.
NATURE: Church Women United is a national movement through which Protestant, Orthodox, Roman Catholic, and other Christian women may express the ecumenical dimensions of their faith and work. Units in states and local communities are organized around their own by-laws, it being understood that such by-laws may not be in conflict with those of the national movement.
PARTICIPATION: Church Women United is open to all Christian women who wish to manifest their unity by building a covenantal community through worship, study and cooperative action. Other women may participate provided they understand the purpose of the movement and intend to cooperate in advancing its program.
PARTICIPANTS: Madison Church Women United is made up of groups and individuals who aspire to its purpose. Financial support comes from Fair Share gifts from groups. Individuals may contribute $5 or more which defrays the cost of the newsletter subscription. Checks should be made out to Church Women United in Madison and sent to the local treasurer, Marleen Lippert, 6329 Scandia Lane, McFarland 53558. Each member church has a representative who is the connecting link between that church and Church Women United. Of course, all women are welcome and encouraged to attend all CWU meetings.
As Church Women United begins its 2020 year, it continues in its historic struggle for peace, justice, and the empowerment of women.
The goals are:
1) economic justice for all
2) quality health care for all
3) a clean and safe environment
that supports life on this earth
