In memory of her husband, Mitzie Dew wishes to establish The Bill Dew Table Fund to support the multiplication of new United Methodist faith communities based on the model of The Table – the church start in Sacramento where their daughter, the Rev. Linda Dew-Hiersoux, serves as one of the pastors. As "The Great Commandment and the Great Commission were at the heart of Bishop Dew’s life and ministry, The Bill Dew Table Fund will nurture and support the growth of new Wesleyan churches," according to a statement released through The Table.
Please make checks payable to "Bill Dew Table Fund" and mail to: The Table, c/o Central UMC, 5265 H Street, Sacramento, CA 95819.
