WMU Emphasis for 2012-2014: The Story Lives On

The story of God’s leadership through WMU is a story worth telling. And the telling of a story that is 125 years old it is worth repeating.

Every two years WMU chooses an emphasis that permeates throughout all materials, events, and activities. During 2012-2014 the emphasis focuses on the story of WMU, our leaders, members, and accomplishments but most importantly our work of prayer, gaining knowledge of God and the world, and our response to His call to act.

In 2012-2014 WMU will:

  • Celebrate the radical stories of WMU—past and present.
  • Connect our stories as we forge our future.
  • Commit to tell the gospel story and ignite a passion for the Great Commission for all generations.

Our watchword from Acts 4:20 challenges us:
“’As for us, we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard’” (Acts 4:20

Our emphasis Scripture puts the watchword in context: Acts 4:12-20 (NIV)

Suggested music (additional suggestions can be found in the WMU Year Book)
“We’ve a Story to Tell”
“O Zion Haste”

This summer we joined millions of soccer enthusiasts from all over the world to root for our team in their effort to grasp the coveted World Cup title. Team USA was not expected to do much. As a matter of fact, many thought they would not make it through the first round, but they surprised us by demonstrating just how committed they were to the game and to winning. I grimaced as one player went out with a leg injury and two others left with broken noses during the early matches. But with each game they came back more determined than ever to play hard until the last second of each game.
