Building Community; UMW to meet Oct. 21
United Methodist Women Annual Meeting 2017
Written and submitted by United Methodist Women
United Methodist Women in South Georgia has been “Building Community” all year long. It’s is nothing new for this organization because it is what and who we are – a community.
The conference Annual Meeting being held at Statesboro First United Methodist Church Oct. 21 will highlight this theme and will accent the job our Bishop give us at Annual Conference, “being alive in Christ.”
“Statesboro First is a wonderful and gracious congregation, and one of their special gifts in the Northeast District is generous hospitality,” said Mary Exley, Conference President. “We are excited to be there for the 2017 Annual Meeting.”
The day will begin with registration at 9 a.m., which will allow time for browsing the book room and visiting with old friends and acquaintances. Worship will begin at 10 a.m. in the sanctuary with the procession of presidents, followed by the program, business session, and communion. Lunch will be served in Statesboro First UMC’s beautiful dining room.
“We hope all women of South Georgia will register and come to this meeting this year,” Exley said. “We are nearing the time we will celebrate our 150th anniversary, so it will be a good time to come and learn about that legacy.”
