Annual Conference Planning and Legislative Update
The next meeting of the Southwest Texas Chapter of the Methodist Federation for Social Action will be Thursday, May 12, at Saint John’s UMC. The topic will be the Peace and Justice luncheon that we are co-sponsoring at Annual Conference (along with the Reconciling Ministries Network and the Conference Board of Church and Society). We will talk about where we are in the planning process, what things still need to be done, and how we all can help. This luncheon is the biggest event our chapter has ever undertaken, and it will be a great opportunity to educate people about MFSA, encourage more people to participate, and network with other like-minded people of faith in our Conference.
In addition to the luncheon, MFSA will have 5 vendor tables for the Book Fair, BeadforLife, and Shower of Stoles. Remember to bring your used books dealing with religious, spiritual, or social action topics! Janice Curry will bring a sample of the beads that we will take to Annual Conference for sale to support women and children in Uganda.
We will also have an update on the 82nd Texas Legislature and social justice issues.
The meeting will begin at 6:30pm for snacks and mingling. The program begins at 7:00. This is the last meeting scheduled until August/September. We hope to see you there!”
Join us! Bring a friend!
