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
NIV).

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”
“I Love to Tell the Story”
“A Story to Tell” (Larnelle Harris)
“All the World” (Point of Grace)

Our emphasis book for 2012-2013 is The Story Lives On, by Wanda Lee.

I’ve always admired Melanie in the movie Gone with the Wind. She is sweet and soft-spoken, loves everyone, and gives to those in need. Melanie is a fictional character, but there are real women from the past and present worthy of our admiration.
