September 28          Associational WMU Fall Meeting at Great Swamp Baptist Church

                                Conferences will be offered to help you learn about WMU and its organizations.

We are especially excited that Mellie Jones, a specialist with SC WMU, will lead a conference for young women.

Registration begins at 9:00.  Meeting 9:30-11:45.  Salad Lunch 11:45-12:30.  (Each church is asked to bring enough salads for the number in its group to be shared.)  The church with the largest attendance will be recognized.

Conferences will be offered twice to allow participants the opportunity to learn about different organizations.

Plan to attend, even if you don’t have WMU in your church.  Conferences will include ideas on how to start WMU, as well as how to grow your organizations.

We are excited that Mellie Jones, a SC WMU specialist from Saluda Association, will lead conferences for myMission, the organization for younger women (suggested ages 18-34ish).  We must reach our younger women in order for WMU to grow and thrive.

As an incentive to reach out to as many women as possible, we will be awarding a prize to the church that has the largest number attending.
