Give to the 2015 Birthday Offering
We invite you to open your hearts to the Community of St. Therese of Lisieux (Memphis, Tennessee) and Bethesda Christian Community Center (Barranquilla, Colombia).

Start a conversation about child and maternal nutrition
The first 1,000 days of a child’s life are a critical window for creating a healthier and more prosperous future. Bread for the World's 1,000 Days movement promotes targeted action and investment to improve nutrition for mothers and children in the 1,000 days between a woman’s pregnancy and her child’s second birthday. And you can help.
By educating others (through a conversation or even a minute-for-mission), you can raise awareness around this topic. Download conversation starters to help focus your discussion on child and maternal nutrition. And get suggestions for action and advocacy to improve nutrition for women and children.

Gail, we anticipate having the Churchwide Gathering web page live by the middle of this month. In the meantime, the hotel has been selected, the registration cost set—and the good news is that both will cost less than in 2012! Registration is just $395 for the 2015 Gathering ($125 for single days), and rooms at the Hyatt are $169 plus tax (for up to four in a room). Put it on your calendar—June 18–21, 2015! Put a couple bucks back each day from now until then, and you can almost have it paid for by the time you get there! Can't go? Sponsor someone who can! For more details, check the latest issue of our quarterly newsletter. Go to www.presbyterianmission.org/ministries/pw/about/ and click the "Quarterly newsletter" link. We look forward to seeing you in Minneapolis in June 2015!
When will the Churchwide Gathering link be updated with the information on the 2015 CWG? We are anxious to get the details, so that women can start planning, especially in regards to registration costs. Thank you.
