They are called to strengthen our faith and continue the ministry of Jesus Christ by service and witness in the world. NMWMS is committed to witness by participating in the ministry beyond the congregation; know the community and partner with agencies to provide needed service; be advocates urging change in systems and structures which exclude and alienate and work for peace and justice in the community; encourage, recruit, affirm and motivate a membership of intergenerational caring women and provide opportunities for mission education.
