United Methodist Women of Indiana are counted among the thousands of women from around the globe who will convene Assembly 2010 on April 30 in St. Louis, Mo. This three-day event represents one of the largest and most diverse groups of women of faith from the largest denominational faith organization for women, United Methodist Women. This 18th quadrennial event will celebrate and empower women of faith and mobilize them for continued mission for women, children, and youth.

Inspired by faith and activated by justice, Assembly 2010 is a movement of women from all walks of life. Women will come together as one body to worship, fellowship with each other, and to address and act upon issues affecting women, children and youth. The Assembly theme of “Faith • Hope • Love in Action” solidifies this gathering into a movement for all women of faith.

The theme of “Faith • Hope • Love in Action” includes a vision statement and scripture passage (Colossians 1:3-6) guiding the collective vision for Assembly 2010. The vision statement reads:

As United Methodist Women who are disciples of Jesus Christ we are called to share…

  • Faith: Our belief in the promise of a new heaven and a new earth.
  • Hope: Our expectation of needs met for all.
  • Love: Our sisterhood of grace and our embodiment of justice

In Action: We find fulfillment of Faith. Hope. Love in the name of Jesus Christ.
