“For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven,” Ecclesiastes 3:1

Hello United Women in Faith,

We face many seasons in life. Some good, some not so good. The Bible shows us that no matter what season we experience, God is in every one of them. Assembly 2022 may be behind us, but the excitement lives on. The Community Gatherings and Town Halls uplifted and inspired me. They were reminders that no matter what season we are in, we have work to do as United Women in Faith.

We all know how quickly the months pass. We must keep up. Have you responded to calls for the following actions?

End Corporal Punishment in Schools: https://p2a.co/xODeK7y

Counseling Not Criminalization in Schools: https://p2a.co/6fkUn0z

Locally, we have the CTCUWFaith Annual Conference Luncheon June 14th, and Mission u August 5th & 6th  is right around the corner. Mission Ties is out and ready for download. We are grateful to all Districts for committing to a Mission u event this year. There are  dates and times missing from District events, we will make sure to get those out as soon as we can. We wanted to give you information and locations so you can SAVE THE DATE.

A few reminders:

  • Five-Star Individual Giver Awards – the deadline to be recognized is June 30th. Local treasurers complete and submit all the required reports to District Treasurers by July 15. District Treasurers submit to Conference Treasurer by August 1.
  • August is the month when we get to hear from our locals units about the things you’ve accomplished over the past year and how we can assist you moving forward. We ask that all units complete and submit the Five Star, Mission Project, and Mission Study Combined Report form to the Central Texas Mission Coordinator for Education & Interpretation Chair – Linda Beach, lsnbeach@gmail.com by August 15th.
  • If you have not received the email from Caye Felton, Central Texas Conference Secretary of Program Resources regarding updates to the Reading Program, please contact her: caye.felton@gmail.com

This is the season to invite women of all ages to see what we are about. Check out the new membership resource, “Excite New Women, Invite Participation. You can download this resource here: https://www.umwmissionresources.org/content.asp?tid=1387

With God’s help we are regrouping and rebuilding. Your Conference & District Teams are ready and committed to assist in any way we can. Let us know how we can serve you better.

Urgent: Tell the Senate to Act to Prevent Gun Violence

As Christians we are called by scripture to transform a society marked by violence into one of peace. Make it clear to your elected officials that they must act NOW to pass more stringent legislation on firearm sales, background checks, and waiting periods.
