Get Involved with Assembly 2014
Make it happen!
National Mission Institution Kits
As we continue to enhance our relationship with National Mission Institutions, you are invited to assemble kits with items needed by your conference’s institution(s) as a pre-assembly activity. Contact the institutions for suggestions for the contents of the kits. Kit assembling may be done locally or at the district or conference level. Make arrangements with the institutions’ staff to pick up or delivery of the kits. You may be able to combine a kit delivery with a tour of the institution.
Take photos and videos of your kit assembly and send them to us! We’ll display them at Assembly!
Calling all United Methodist Women members with knitting, crocheting or sewing skills! Create prayer shawls and baby blankets for those in need! Visit the prayer shawl page for more information.
