Message from our  Conference President:

I hope you have all had some rest and relaxation over the summer - school has already started back and fall will be here before we know it!

I don't know about you, but I cannot wait to go up the mountain for the spiritual retreat at Beersheba September 7-9! Olive Davenport and her team have worked very hard to make this event special and are excited to welcome us. Please note that there are classes for the children and youth when the adults are in session - please encourage moms and grandmothers in your church to come to the retreat and bring their precious children! The deadline for applications being received is August 24.

We are so thrilled to announce that Harriet Jane Olson, CEO of United Methodist Women National, will be our guest speaker at our Annual Meeting on October 13! It will be held at Murfreesboro First UMC and they can't wait to host us. Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. and the meeting will begin at 9:30 a.m.

Extended information about both of these events and registration forms are included in this newsletter.

It actually rained in my neck of the woods today (Praise God!) and it became cool enough for me to sit out on the deck. As I looked out over God's creation, I had no doubt that He was with me. His love and faithfulness are everlasting. There is no better way for us to return this faithfulness to Him than to take care of the least of these. That is what we as United Methodist Women do through our mission giving - we are taking care of women, children and youth. As we enter the last portion of 2018, please prayerfully consider making an extra gift - individually, as units or as a district - to this important and worthwhile cause. Karen Maynard will be more than happy to process these extra checks and send them on!

Thanks so much for your hard work and faithfulness to United Methodist Women. I hope to see many of you soon!
