From the January United Methodist Women News:
For more than 150 years, United Methodist Women has put faith, hope, and love into action. It’s meant listening to God’s call and answering to the changing needs of women, children and youth. This year, United Methodist Women will be debuting new branding and new programs to welcome even more women into our supportive sisterhood. Check out our video. Together, we can do more.

I hope that you will look at the videos mentioned above. We have exciting times ahead. Have you thought about what it will mean to our organization when we develop innovative programs and new branding that will make us even more inviting and interesting to welcome more women into our sisterhood?
Keep informed. The November/December issue of response had an article helping to explain what it means to rebrand and it states that “United Methodist Women is saying “yes” to being a part of God’s new thing and taking steps to fulfill our purpose in some new and some improved ways.” United Methodist Women – New Wineskins for New Times
I’m excited about the changes to come soon. As you will read in response, we have new programming for Mission u and Soul Care. We now have a national membership for anyone who wants to belong. New Wineskins for new wine; we all keep growing and changing. So does the world around us. Let’s embrace the change as we move forward with faith, hope, and love in action.
Peace and Blessings,
Kathy Schock, program advisory group member
