East District

July 2019

Hello East District,

It is July! We are half way through the year. Mission u is around the corner. Have you registered for your class?  Registrations for Glen Lake must be made by July 17th. I encourage everyone if you cannot attend Mission u at Glen Lake to attend the One Day study at St. Andrews UMC, Arlington or any of the Central Texas One Day events close to you.

The Lord is calling us. Can you hear him? He continues to call us as United Methodist Women to step outside the box. He continues to call on us to be his hands and feet in the mission field. Please do not let the summer stop you from doing the work he has called you to do. I know that there are several community ministries that need our support. I encourage everyone to continue to support them any way that you can.

God reminds us that, “The One who calls you is faithful and he will do it”, (1 Thessalonians 5:24). Is there something new that God has placed on your heart to do in ministry with women, children and young adults? Take some time to write down the plans that He is giving to you. Then get together with your local unit and make them happen. One thing I love about United Methodist Women is there are so many things we can do to support the lives of others. God says there are no limits with what we can do. All we have to do is trust him and be faithful in our work.

There have been some changes in districting within the Central Texas Conference. Your East District Leadership Team would like to honor those local units who will be moving to other districts at our East District Annual Fall Gathering. The date has been changed to Saturday, November 9th at Ferris Heights in Waxahachie. We would love for everyone to come out for our annual celebration. More information will follow via email. Please be mindful of the dates your reports must be received per our resource handbooks.

In the meantime, please continue to keep all our local units in prayer, for strength, guidance and persistence.  The world needs us!

Pam Pinkerton-Whitley, East District President
