Come to Jurisdiction in Alaska!
Greetings, United Women of Faith!
Registration is now open for the Western Jurisdiction United Women in Faith Quadrennial Gathering in Anchorage, Alaska! Please register at wjumw.com, where you will find detailed information on the hotel, Alaska Airlines discounts, time schedules, and workshop opportunities. Hotel Captain Cook offers the option of adding three additional days before or after our gathering if you’d like to extend your stay and take the opportunity to see more of Alaska.
We’re excited about this chance to “Get Together” at the Captain Cook Hotel in Anchorage on May 9-11, 2024. (pre-events start May 8, 2024). Our theme, “Get Together,” is centered in John 13:34, and all the jurisdictions share it. This theme feels especially relevant after having to cancel the 2020 in-person event and move to online only. After eight years, our team is eager to gather in person, as we’re sure you are! The central purpose of this event is to elect women who will represent our jurisdiction as National Board of Director members. In addition, we will worship, celebrate, share, serve, learn, sing, pray and connect.
The past several years of planning have been unusually challenging due to the pandemic. Still, our team is delighted with how well the many aspects of our event have come together to showcase our values and priorities while also highlighting the rich diversity and many cultures of Alaska. We’re honored to have Amy Valdez Barker, PhD as our keynote speaker and Makeda McCreary as our music director. This will also be an opportunity to meet Sally Vonner, our new General Secretary/CEO, and our President, ‘Ainise ‘Isama’u. It is our prayer that this event will be an opportunity for each of you to rest and be renewed as we celebrate our work as United Women of Faith together. Early registration goes through Nov. 30, 2023, offering you an opportunity to save $50. Thank you for your continued support of all we do as United Women of Faith! We hope to see you in Anchorage!
