East District

Greetings East District Local Organizations,

I am looking forward to serving you this year.  We are United Methodist Women. We are a community of women with a purpose. We are women who are about breaking boundaries and creating new opportunities. Our vision: to turn faith, hope and love into action on behalf of women, children and youth in the world.  We do this by following the Mission of UMW – to provide opportunities to grow spiritually, equip women/girls to become leaders, be organized for growth, provide transformative educational experiences and work for justice.

The theme for the 2015-2016 Program Book was “Growing in Blessedness”. It was a journey through the Beatitudes. The programs were designed to help women extend blessedness to all. They were designed to energize us so that we could be energized for mission. The Beatitudes give us a lesson on transforming self from the inside out.  They turn our expectations upside down and make us want to look to God instead of trusting ourselves. United Methodist Women stand on a foundation built by God and we seek to share the blessing of our relationship with God through mission.

Your East District and Central Texas Conference Leadership teams have planned several events this year that are designed to fulfill the Mission of UMW. I’d like to lift up some that will be happening in the next couple of months: Sing-a-Rainbow,  February 4th at Acton UMC. Maternal child health is one of the UMW issue priorities for 2016 -2020; we look forward to the speakers who will share their knowledge and insight on this important topic.  The 2017 Central Texas Conference UMW Retreat is March 3-4 at Camp Arrowhead in Cleburne, TX.  "Living Water", is the theme for this overnight event. Scholarships are also available. The link for registration and information for these events are found on the homepage of this website.  To help the planning teams, please register early for these events.

United Methodist Women are women on a mission.  When God calls us to do new things we must invest time and attention if our path is to be successful. How will you invest your time and attention in the direction that God is calling you?  Are you on a mission for God?  One of my goals this year is to assist East District Local Organizations by sharing your event information on this site.   Please be sure to send me event information so it can be posted here. We are a community of women who need to communicate with each other. “Each one of us can make a difference, together we make change” Barbara Mikulski.

Blessings and peace to you,

Pam Pinkerton, East District UMW President
