UMW - From the President
News from the Prez…….
Greetings for 2014!! Welcome to our new website! We hope you will have easier access to information and registration through the Oklahoma Conference UMC website. (www.okumc.org/umw)
Hope all of you had a blessed 2013 Christmas and a Happy New Year.
2013 was a busy year of learning for me. I have been so blessed by the times together with “old” and new UMW friends.
It’s time again to begin meeting with United Methodist Women across the Oklahoma Conference at Re-ignite Workshops, retreats, team meetings, and Assembly 2014: Make it Happen! The bus for Assembly is full and others will be traveling by air and auto to Louisville, Kentucky. Our own Jerrie Lindsey, McAlester District UMW President, will be consecrated a Deaconess during the Sunday Morning Worship.
I will be attending the Re-ignite Workshops in the Woodward, McAlester, Muskogee, Bartlesville and Tulsa Districts this year. I hope to make new friends and encourage women who are not UMW members to become so.
On our site is the list of current UMW Conference officers and their contact information, the 2014 UMW event calendar, and the Theme, Goals, and Conference Hands-on project.
I hope many of you have already registered for the Day at the Legislature on February 10 at the State Capitol. Spiritual Growth Retreat will be at Sequoia State Park Lodge near Wagnoner April 4-6. You will need to register early!!
New this year will be the Social Justice Event, June 21 at The Christ Experience (formerly Christ UMC) in Oklahoma City. Janis Rosheuvel, Racial Justice staff, UMW National Office will be facilitator for the event. Registration information will be on the website this spring, as well as distributed through the districts. Save the date!!
Blessings to you all, Cindy
