The numbers are only a glimpse into the 2014 Annual Meeting, but are reported here to let you know the just some of the impact of this year’s meeting.  Our thanks to everyone who came and also watched by livestream.  You can still see the sessions and can share them with others in your church.  Watching the Friday evening session would make a great program for a Women on Mission meeting!

Our thanks to the many volunteers who helped, and they are more than I can count!  Central Baptist Church did an outstanding job of hosting the meeting.  Thank you Peggy Craycraft and everyone on your team.

Pictures of this year’s meeting are posted on the Kentucky WMU Facebook page:  You can also read Linda Cooper’s recap of this year’s meeting in my last blog.

Plans are underway for the 2015 Kentucky WMU Annual Meeting, April 10-11 at Sand Spring Baptist Church in Lawrenceburg. Mark your calendar or put it in your electronic calendar, including turning in your meal registration in advance!
