UMW Calendar

2018-2019

Sisterhood of Grace

“In 2019, United Methodist Women will celebrate 150 years of women organized for mission. It is a long and
detailed history, involving millions of committed women and their stories. Most of them are unknown.
Though we cannot tell all the stories, our programs during the year will touch on pieces of our shared
history, connect that history to today, then look into the future as we continue Christ’s mission and ministry.”
