As churches close out 2019, United Methodist Women have new resources available to help leaders kick off the new year. All items are available to purchase or download at the UMW website.
Let Your Light Shine: 2019-2020 Program Book
Twelve monthly programs explore biblical passages of light from the Old and New Testaments. The study will challenge and encourage as you explore biblical understandings of being God's light in the world as Christ's disciples. You will also be to shine a light on issues that crush and marginalize God's children and challenge systems and powers of darkness and evil, while being emboldened with hope to practice justice in the world.
2020 United Methodist Women Reading Program
Every year United Methodist Women releases a catalog of recommended books and resources on five ministry-related topics: education for mission, leadership development, nurturing for community, social action and spiritual growth. The catalog also includes reading plans and reports for tracking one’s progress. The catalog also has recommendations for Spanish- and Korean-speakers.
2020 Prayer Calendar
The 2020 Prayer Calendar encourages United Methodists to discover and celebrate the various ways God’s light shines in their world and through their lives. Each week features photographs depicting different United Methodist-supported ministries and projects around the world with guided prayers.
