Memorial Drive United Methodist Church formed a unit of Women’s Society for Christian Service, the predecessor to UMW, almost as soon as the church itself was organized. The first circle was named Mary Lee Marshall Circle after Mary Lee, a Texas girl, who was married to Bill Jack, a Texas boy. They served as missionaries in Bolivia.


The organized unit of United Methodist Women shall be a community of women whose purpose is 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.

Each year United Methodist Women at MDUMC come together to host Hearts & Hands. It is an amazing fundraiser which supports many local outreach ministries as well as providing scholarships for youth mission and choir trips. Enjoy shopping at booths from over 70 vendors which blanket our main campus.  Stay refreshed with a yummy bake sale item and premium cup of coffee or enjoy a delicious boxed lunch.  A visit to Hearts & Hands is never complete without a stroll through the silent auction.  What a wonderful way to usher in the Christmas spirit while supporting missions that benefit women, children and youth through grants from the United Methodist Women.  For those of you wanting a more personal involvement,  there are wonderful volunteer or baking opportunities as well as donation needs for our silent auction…special event tickets or family vacation getaways you might have to offer are all welcomed!

We had a very successful Hearts & Hands Holiday Market in 2017! Memorial Drive United Methodist Women would like to say “thank you” to all of our corporate sponsors, generous donors, countless volunteers, dedicated shoppers, and our church’s incredible facilities staff for another very successful Hearts & Hands Holiday Market. In addition to raising over $50,000 that will go toward supporting missions that benefit women, children and youth, over $3,000 was donated for Hurricane Harvey Relief! Thank you to everyone who donated, baked, volunteered, shopped, and supported our efforts this year.
