Greetings North District United Methodist Women,


Annual Conference held big news for North District. We are 8 units larger now. We welcome Alvarado, Campus, El Buen Samaritano,           Everman,McMillan, Meadowbrook, Morningside, and Polytechnic. Our UMW Calendar is split in various places unlike the Conference year    where new changes take place July 1. We are working through the change, but the pledge is made Jan1 for the books and records. The new units pledge money stays with East District this year. However, we have great participation from the new unit already and 2 of the North Team    are from the new units. The new units will participate in our November Leadership meeting where all information will be passed out for the 2020year. We look forward to the inclusion of additional units and all the blessings they bring with them.


Our Christmas in July event was at Poly this year. The Theme was Mary. Seeing the children read their part in the program shows how much our centers are doing for the education of the children. Also getting kids up in front of a group of strangers to say something is no small achievement. I hope we give them the confidence to do more in the future with our loving reception of them. The devotion was especially powerful with Valerie Stowe as Mary, a 15-year-old unwed pregnant woman in that era. Food for thought that would never come from a male interpretation of the scripture.

Our next next district meeting is September 14, 2019 at Crowley UMC, 509 Peach Street, Crowley, 76036. 9:30 registration and fellowship, 10 meeting. This is our annual meeting where we recognize all the hard work our local organization have done as well as person accomplishments of our members. The theme of the meeting will be “The Mental Challenges of Aging”. Officers for 2020 will be elected and installed.


The next big task is the construction of our yearbook! I, Margaret Gessley, need the full cooperation of all units. Please send her your information on the officers of your units with addresses, phone numbers and email addresses. I need this as soon as possible. The deadline is September 30, 2019. Please look on this as a proposed list; changes can be made later but we need something to be put in the book. Also, please update your minister if it has changed since the 2019 booklet came out. My email address is Snail mail 4920 Viejo Court, Granbury, 76049.


As always, I am available to help any local organization as is every member of the North District UMW team.


Margaret Gessley
