Journey in Faith

  • Plans are for another Conference Spring Retreat in Spring 2019 with theme and subject to be decided.  Ideas are welcome and may be sent to Jenelle Erb, team leader.
  • UMW Sunday Worship service outline is being prepared by Jenelle Erb to be used by units in our conference for this next year.  Each unit is encouraged to hold a UMW Sunday.

Journey in Giving

We are all familiar with the 5 main channels of Mission giving:  Pledge, Special Mission Recognition Pin, Gift in Memory (card), Gift in Mission (card), and World Thank Offering.  Great Plains Conference has adopted two additional ways to add to our pledge.  Some in our conference may not be as familiar with these:

Journey in Growth  - we have over 15,000 members in Great Plains

Journey in Learning
