Alpharetta Methodist strives to serve and support women in their journey for friendship, spiritual growth and service through the following ministries.
AFUMC’s ministry for women is called Tapestry, a name that evokes the beauty of the diversity of the women of our church. Women come together from all ages and stages of life; their work status differs; some are married and some single; some have children and others don’t. But they are bound to each other by a shared yearning to connect with our Lord.
