Mary Elizabeth Inn Celebrates Centennial

August 27, 2014

On Saturday, October 4th at 2:00 p.m., people from across the CA-NV Annual Conference will gather at Jones Memorial UMC in San Francisco to celebrate Mary Elizabeth Inn’s centennial.  It promises to be a spirit filled afternoon.  You are invited!
Mary Elizabeth Inn, a National Mission Institution of the United Methodist Church located in San Francisco, is celebrating 100 years of providing safe and affordable housing to women of limited means.
For 100 years, members and congregants of United Methodist Churches and its predecessors have supported the mission of Mary Elizabeth Inn with their prayers, time, talents and financial gifts.  Thanks be to God!
During Annual Conference earlier this summer, a 100 day campaign to ‘give your change to change women’s lives’ began.  The goal is to raise $10,000, or about $30 per church in our annual conference, to support the meals program at Mary Elizabeth Inn.  The campaign culminates on Sunday, September 28th.
It’s not too late to begin to collect your change to change the lives of the women who call Mary Elizabeth Inn home.  It’s not too late to initiate a campaign at your local church.

Download the bulletin insert, a powerpoint file, and a ‘make it yourself box’ to hold your change and you will be fully equipped. 
Please put the worship service celebrating Mary Elizabeth Inn’s centennial on your calendar and plan to come.  Your presence will make our celebration complete!
