It is that time of year again. National UMW needs to tally all the Local UMW groups from around the globe. Have you gone online and let the National Office know how many are in your group? This is the count for 2018. It is completed by March each year. If you aren't computer savvy, Margaret can help you thru the website or get the information into the computer for you.
Do we have your current Officers?
Have you updated your local Officers to the Great Northern District team? It is hard to keep your group informed of events, deadlines and educational materials if we don't have your info. So often we try to get information out only to find our contact information is out of date. Please help us help you.
Meet the ladies who are your Great Northern District team. Come get your questions answered. Learn how to enrich your United Methodist Women experience. Spend a day with your sisters. It's free and fun.
We would love to come to your church and spend a day sharing information and answering your questions. Our gatherings are informal and informative. We would like to have one on each side of the sierras to accommodate more ladies. Let me know when we can come to your church. These are small gatherings and average 15-20 people.
The UMW Purpose
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.
