A big THANK YOU to EVERYONE...individual United Methodist Women, local units, District Treasurers and others who put extra effort into Mission Giving in the 4th quarter.
Conference President, Mildred Carter, adds her thanks to the Local Units who made this great achievement happen!
"...their abundant joy...overflowed in a wealth of generosity on their part..." (2 Corinthians 8:2)
As many of you know, the preceding scripture is one of my favorites. It is because of our joy as children of God that we can respond so generously. Because of your generosity, the lives of many women, children, and youth are changed in our local communities and around the world.
Thank you to all members of Local Units of United Methodist Women of the Western North Carolina Conference!
BLESSINGS FOR A WONDERFUL NEW YEAR
as you continue to serve God
through United Methodist Women
