In just a few weeks, Kentucky WMU will gather at Central Baptist Church in Winchester for our Annual Meeting. Interest in the Bucket Project is gaining momentum across our state. We have just learned that Randy Foster, retired Baptist Men on Mission Director for the KBC, has 250 buckets that he is donating for the Bucket Project. So, if you have not yet packed a bucket, please bring items for buckets and join our bucket brigade at Annual Meeting.
Herb and Wanda Edminister, Kentucky coordinators for the Bucket Project, will have tables set up in the gym for bucket items. During any of the conference periods, you are invited to come help us pack buckets and deliver them out to the parking lot. We will pack buckets as long as we have materials on hand. Any unused materials will be distributed to people who will complete the buckets and turn them in later in the year. Our goal at Annual Meeting is to complete 1400 buckets! That will get us off to a great start on our goal of 5,000 buckets this year.
Paul Atchison, Ron and Greta Wilson, and others will be on the parking lot to receive completed buckets. We would like for each person or church dropping off completed buckets to complete a form telling us what church the buckets are from and how many were brought. We are so grateful for your participation.
Several Winchester hotels are full and other area hotels are now getting reservations. This is going to be a great meeting and you want to be there! Remember that all meal reservations are due by Tuesday, March 25. Due to contracts with caterers, we must turn in the final count in advance and we do not order extra meals! Get your reservations in early!! Register by mail or online.
Share the Annual Meeting press release with others. The meeting is free and preregistration is not required (except for meals). Child care and interpretation for the deaf are also available. We hope to see you in Winchester, April 4-5!
