October 27, 2018, First United Methodist Church of Sunnyvale
Continuing this year’s theme of “The Power of Bold,” our District UMW Annual Celebration is focused on “Justice With Compassion.” We will lift up the mission, ministry, and spiritual growth of units and groups within the District during the past year. A choice of workshops is offered, to learn more about being in ministry to others. And we will worship and be in fellowship together, with vibrant music, motivating message, and service of communion.
Featured speaker: Lindsey Bell-Kerr, Pastor of Christ Church United Methodist of Santa Rosa, CA, and Associate Pastor of Santa Rosa UMC. Lindsey is passionate about the church’s role in working for justice and social change, and seeks to live as a disciple of the radical and compassionate Jesus Christ.
When we gather to celebrate and worship, our music will be led by Jo Neish in her vibrant and enthusiastic style.
Workshops: In addition to gathering in celebration of the year, we will have the choice of 3 workshops. They seek to help us answer these questions: What can WE do to…
- Support immigration justice
- Support women & youth in transition
- Interrupt the school-to-prison pipeline
- The Rev. Dr. Charles Tinsley, chaplain at Contra Costa County Juvenile Detention Center
