President’s Message

Be Very Bold

The new year, as with each new day, carries it’s own story. When I wake up each morning, I have thoughts of what I want to do that day, but every hour can bring about a change. As I start this new year I am filled with new hope and expectations of what change with God’s help I will be a part of. The ever-changing world in which we live, sometimes makes me sad, however I know I’m not alone. The community of United Methodist Women, will be very bold. Together we will share the old ways and embrace the new to support the Purpose and mission of United Methodist Women.

The theme for the United Methodist Women’s 2018 Assembly is “The Power of Bold”. The North Georgia Conference United Methodist Women will use this theme and the scripture, II Corinthians 3: 11-12 (NLT): So if the old way, which has been replaced, was glorious, how much more glorious is the new, which remains forever! Since this new way gives us such confidence, we can be very bold.

Be very bold – join the North Georgia Conference Executive Team as we welcome the National United Methodist Women’s President, Shannon Priddy, for the Faith, Fun Everyone Event on March 10, 2018.

Be very bold – join the 120 members from the North Georgia Conference who have registered to attend The Assembly, May 17-20, 2018 in Columbus, Ohio.

Be very bold – share your United Methodist Women’s story with someone as it may inspire another. Share your acts of kindness which you did because of your love and compassion for others and your service with United Methodist Women.

Be very bold – use your voice and listen to your heart. Take time to learn about the four quadrennial social justice issues: Maternal and Child Health, Economic Inequality, Climate Justice and Criminalization of People of Color-Mass Incarceration. Act on one or all the issues through prayer, advocacy and service.

Be very bold – support the 150th Anniversary Legacy Fund. The Legacy Fund is a forward-thinking permanent endowment with income dedicated to strengthening the future of United Methodist Women.

Be Very Bold – have faith that produces action!

Blessings – Tryphenia
