Join us as we celebrate the 125th birthday of WMU with a tour of the national WMU office in Birmingham. We will visit the Kentucky room, tour the building, meet WMU staff, and have lunch. There will be time to linger in the Alma Hunt Museum and see items from WMU history and shop in the WMU Gift Shop. We will also have cake and ice cream with the staff.
The tour leaves on Thursday, May 9. You can join us in Louisville (KBC Building), Elizabethtown (Severns Valley Baptist Church) or Bowling Green (Warren Association office). We will stop in Nashville for lunch at the LifeWay Building cafeteria followed by a tour of the building to see where our Sunday School and other literature is produced. We will arrive in Birmingham by early evening in time for supper and shopping at the Riverchase Galleria Mall. Our hotel, The Wynfrey, is adjacent to the mall.
On Friday morning, May 10, we will arrive at the WMU headquarters early so that we will have the morning for the tour, visiting the museum, shopping, and lunch. Wanda Lee and other staff will meet with us. It will be a special time to express our appreciation to the national staff for their hard work to produce the missions resources we use in our churches and associations.
After lunch we will get on the bus and head home with stops in Bowling Green and Elizabethtown to let off those who joined us en route. We expect to return to Louisville by 9 p.m.
