“Honoring our Past, Engaging our Present, Looking Forward to the Future” is the theme of this year’s Western PA Conference UMW Annual Meeting which will be held Saturday, October 26, from 8:45 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Christ United Methodist Church in Bethel Park.
Bishop Cynthia Moore-Koikoi and Pittsburgh District Superintendent Dawn Hand will lead morning and afternoon worship.
Representatives from local agencies will share how they are engaged in ministries, potentially sparking ideas to engage the present by beginning something new in communities related to the current initiatives of United Methodist Women (Criminalization of Communities of Color: Interrupt the school-to-prison pipeline; Maternal and Infant Health; Economic Inequality and Climate Justice).
Keyote speaker Ebony Diaz, the UMW National Executive for Nurture and Development, will explore the future of United Methodist Women, and discuss ways to engage new women to carry on the legacy and purpose for the next 150 years. Get more details
