Praise God! God is Good! by Josephine Deere
03/25/2006 Have groups who are critical of United Methodist Women been a factor on our giving?

The trend in churches and non-profits across the nation is that giving is decreasing and that persons have a desire to designate where their money goes.

This makes us a unique organization, and we want to spread this message so that all women say, “That is an organization I want to join! Thanks be to God!”
