LIMITLESS: For Such A Time As This
Friday, June 27 - 29 (11am) 2014
University of Indianapolis
For Young Women Ages 13-19, 20-29, & Mentors, ages: 30-40
WOW! Thank you for your prayers for the Young Women’s Limitless Event! God’s presence was surely evident the entire weekend! We give praise for His prevenient grace that went before to greet and accompany us on this phenomenal journey! Thirteen participants, beginning with age 15, quickly bonded together as friends, grew in their knowledge and understanding of United Methodist Women, and a shared commonality of commitment to be used by God to make a difference in the world through their faith, hope and love in action. These gals were truly amazing and it was indeed an awe inspiring and phenomenal weekend together!
The leadership team and the participants are grateful for your prayers! Everyone acknowledged the event far exceeded our greatest expectations! If you are blessed to have one of these young women in your unit or church, please welcome her with radical hospitality and nourish her in every way! These young women are the future of United Methodist Women!
Praises, too, for Anne Bunch and Vickie Newkirk who led enlightening and inspirational workshops that broadened our understanding of United Methodist Women, our PURPOSE, and our mission!
Praises for the worship team: Pastor Jill Moffett Howard and musicians Anne Moman and Jenna Nawrocki and her sister! The messages and music all enhanced and celebrated the event’s scriptural theme, “Called for such a time as this”, from Esther 4:14.
Praises for University UMC and the BIBS ministry who welcomed our young women to experience hands-on mission by assembling various kits for babies to be distributed by through the BIBS Pantry housed in the church! A time of fun and blessing was had by all!
Lastly, but certainly not least, praises, for Patsy Fleener’s leadership as chair (conference MNO) and her team Diane Gattone, Shannon Priddy, Mary Lynn Dennis, Kathy White, and Jenn Meadows for their insights and help in planning this fantastic event!
We give thanks to our AWESOME GOD, for His steadfast love and faithfulness and ask God’s continued blessing on each of these young women as they share their faith, hope and love in new ways! Thank you, UMW of IN for supporting this leadership opportunity. Please continue to pray for these young women, nurturing them in their faith and service. Your affirmation and encouragement will empower them to be leaders in your units!
