UMW General Meeting
  [More]

Please join us on Tuesday, October 14, at 11 a.m. as Church Streeter Mary Ellis Richardson speaks to our United Methodist Women General Meeting. Mary Ellis will share her very personal insights about raising her son Powell, a disabled adult. Mary Ellis and her husband, Steve, made news in 1992 when they, with help from Church Street Senior Minister Dr. Ken Carder, petitioned the General Conference of the United Methodist Church to allow congregations to answer the vows of membership on behalf of anyone who could not answer for themselves. This bold move was approved and ultimately allowed Powell and many others in United Methodist churches to become full members of their congregations.

Based on her career as an attorney and judge, she will also address Church Street's access issues as well as the United Methodist Church's efforts to make our places of worship and fellowship the fully welcoming places they need to be. This topic is especially timely for our congregation as we consider a significant renovation project.

As always, this UMW meeting is open to all in our church and community. We will begin at 11 a.m. in Parish Hall and lunch will be served at noon. Please call the church office at 524-3048 with your reservation by Friday, October 10.
