Message from our  Conference President:
 
Hi girls!

It is just a short time before we gather on the mountain for our Spiritual Life Retreat and I, for one, can't wait to get up there! Please be in prayer for the Beersheba staff and our retreat team as they make final preparations for our event.

You will see an article in here about Assembly 2018! Those who have attended know what a wonderful experience this is. I hope we have a large group from our conference to attend. Thanks to Eileen Horton and Margaret Cornell for being our liaisons for this event.

It is now the time of year when we begin to have our district annual meetings. It is my prayer that these meetings are a time of joy as we celebrate the year we have had and prepare for the year to come.

Please make plans to attend our Conference Annual Meeting. You will find an article and registration form in here as well. The ladies at Lambuth UMC have been preparing for us to come and this is always a blessed event. Thanks to Jerlean Bass for her work in making our meeting possible. I hope to see all of you there.

I know it doesn't seem possible, but fall will be here before we know it and, while we should have a season of Thanksgiving all year long, this theme now becomes a focus for us. May we give thanks to God for the year we have had and for what we have been able to do for the mission of women, children and youth. May we also pray for wisdom and guidance for next year as He leads us to make a difference. May we always remember that He is the giver of all good gifts and recognize what a blessed people we are. Thanks be to God for all His blessings.

Speaking of blessings, may I say how blessed I am to be working and serving with you. I am always thankful for that opportunity and am always amazed at how you all serve with love, grace and integrity. Thank you.

Blessings to you and yours,

Nita

Dear Friends:
As I write this, I am praying for blessings of Advent and Christmas for each of you and for the United Methodist Women throughout our conferences and districts. I am pleased to invited you into a special work of prayer for our Church in the new year.
The 2016 General Conference asked the Council of Bishops to take up the challenge of offering leadership to our church at this critical time when talk of schism and the nature of our unity is in the air. The Bishops offered a proposal to form a Commission on the Way Forward, which is now in place.  Read rest of letter
