UNITED WOMEN IN FAITH
Below are suggestions of material that may be used for UWF Sunday, 2020. We continue focusing on the 150th anniversary of UMW with our two-year theme: Remember the Past, Embrace the Present, Transform the Future. This year we are looking at one of the Mission Focus Issues, “Maternal and Child Health.”
Remember, too, that Isabella Thoburn and Dr. Clara Swain traveled to India for the expressed purpose of ministering and educating women and children. That established the foundation for our purpose to minister to women, children and youth today.
Also included below are samples of worship elements. All materials may be altered or adapted to suit your particular program or the worship style of your church. We encourage you to develop your own programs and share them with us. Feel free to contact me if you have questions or require help in any way.
In Christ’s Service through UMW,
Susan Huston, VP
The emphasis is “Maternal and Infant Health” focusing on maternal and infant mortality.
These passages show God’s love for children and Jesus’ concern for women and children.
