For Such a Time as This: United Methodist Women Give, Serve Across Our Conference


Tryphenia Speed, president of the United Methodist Women of the North Georgia Conference, shared the following letter in the recent UMW newsletter. She highlights just a few of the good works happening in our Conference through the UMW.

For Such a Time as This

As I reflect on the past couple of months, I realized that North Georgia United Methodist Women have been very busy. I have read many email messages, received phone calls, read district newsletters and even had conversations that bear out we have been busy for such a time as this.
  • Members are collecting and preparing layette kits to bring to Annual Conference in June.
  • Members are promoting the upcoming Spiritual Growth and Social Action Event.
  • Members participated with the Interfaith Children’s Movement Day at the Capitol
  • Members participated in “Let’s Box’Em Up” Human Trafficking Campaign.
  • Members have supported the National Mission Institutions through monetary gifts and volunteer services.
  • Districts and local churches have conducted mission studies.
  • Newly elected conference officers have attended Leadership Development Days.

So, what is to come? Let’s just look at the month of March! March is National Women’s History Month with a theme “Our History is our Strength” Districts are observing Day Apart and Lenten Day Services throughout the month of March in recognition of the ultimate sacrifice that was made for all. March 23 is the Annual Day of Giving for The Legacy Fund United Methodist Women as our Conference UMW continues the work that was begun almost 150 years ago, for such a time as this. The needs have increased and we are to do even greater work as we move forward.

Let us remember our United Methodist Women History and Legacy as we move into the rest of this year and the next 150 years.

Blessings for all you do!
