Assembly 2014
The 19th Assembly of United Methodist Women
April 25-27, 2014
Louisville, Kentucky

Make It Happen!

 

The Assembly Scripture:

The biblical foundation for Assembly 2014 is the feeding of the 5,000 found in Mark 6:30-44.

Theme & Vision:

The theme of the 2014 Assembly is:

MAKE IT HAPPEN!
Turning Faith, Hope and Love into Action

The 2014 Assembly will focus on:

  • Giving Voice to the Individual - Assembly will honor and equip the individual woman to lead, excel and find her own voice.

  • Connecting for Action - Assembly will help women connect with one another and with partners in mission to further the PURPOSE.

  • Practicing Radical Welcome - Assembly will help women expand their vision and their capacity to welcome new and unnoticed women to participate, join and shape our work.

  • Supporting United Methodist Women Strategically - Assembly will inspire women to support this vital mission movement through engagement and giving.

This vision statement offers building blocks that build from the individual to connecting with our partners and one another to welcoming women from different ages, races, languages and cultures. It also challenges us to consider how we support the work of United Methodist Women now and into the future.

It is an exciting experience to be part of this large gathering of United Methodist Women. Make plans to join us in Louisville!
