(2) "Anointed to Bring Good News," (3) "UMW.. On Line As Partners in God's Mission," (4) "To Set the Oppressed Free," and (5) "Sent to Proclaim the Year of the Lord's Favor."

THE JACK TALE Players of Ferrum College (Virginia) entertained during the Banquet with traditional music/stories of the Blue Ridge Mountain. Liturgical dancers from Bethlehem Center Youth of Charlotte, NC, and Youth/Children's Choir of West Market Street UMC (Greensboro) performances enhanced the Plenary sessions.
