Swansboro United Women in Faith (SUWF)

All women are invited to participate in UWF events. Membership is open to women beyond Swansboro UMC who are interested in our mission and “living the vision.”  Join us and share in this opportunity for service to missions and fellowship. It’s a wonderful way to make new friends and enjoy Christian fellowship. We provide the knowledge of the glory of God, enabling us and other women to become strong, independent, resourceful, and supportive of God’s mission through the global ministries of the church. For additional information contact Melissa Bolling.
