Conference/District UMW Annual Celebration
October 10 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm MST
TIME TO CELEBRATE! CELEBRATE US!
CELEBRATE OUR MINISTRY! CELEBRATE OUR FUTURE!
…and the times they are a-changing
COME ALONG! BE A VOICE FOR HEALING! is the theme for Annual Celebration. We get to experience a virtual Annual Celebration. There will still be worship and music. There will still be informative speakers. And there will still be business to take care of. BUT there won’t be any lines to wait for the restroom! AND you can come in your pjs if you want to. (We can find those silver linings anywhere!)
This Annual Celebration will include all four District Annual Celebrations plus the Conference Annual Celebration. It’s just one big, happy meeting on Saturday, October 10, starting at 9:00 a.m.
Our speakers this year will inform us, enlighten us, and encourage us into ministry for/with those in the foster care system. We will have Bonnie Morley, hosted by the North District, tell us about foster care and open table; Jane Pearson of Trinity Opportunity Alliance, hosted by the West District, will inform us about aging out of foster care; and Rev. Jamie Booth, Tempe First UMC/Wesley campus ministry pastor, hosted by the Conference, will share with us about her experience as a foster mom.
Registration is due October 5 but get it in as soon as possible so that we can get additional information to you. We will even have a practice session for people who are not comfortable with Zoom meetings. Let your friends know – maybe you could even set up a watch party to share the time together (safely, of course.)
James 1:27 – religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
I sure hope to see you there!
