United Methodist Women Condemns Attacks on U.S. Capitol in D.C.
WASHINGTON, D.C. — United Methodist Women deplored January 6th attack on the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., and urged members to offer prayers for the nation and unite across political perspectives to uphold the nation and its institutions of democracy. The organization also reiterated its commitment to peaceful assemblies and protests, affirmed the peaceful transfer of power under the U.S. electoral system, and strongly opposed any attempt to subvert the results of the election.
As the world grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic, events are being postponed, rescheduled, and cancelled. The United Methodist Women are committed to the safety of all the members and ask you to check out the calendar of events on this site for changes and information.
Prayers are requested for all UMW members, local, national and international. It is indeed a world in crisis and this is a time to hold others up for God's attention and care.
We look forward to when we can be together again safely face-to-face. In the meantime, stay sheltered and be well.
Blessings, Karen Jones, UMW President
