Secretary Shigeko Shibata 31 Southlite Circle Sacramento, CA 95831 email@example.com 916-798-5708 (Cell)
Shigeko Shibata - As a United Methodist Women I was first introduced to this organization at my local church, Sacramento Japanese UMC. I have served in various capacities at the local level, Conference level and currently your secretary for the Los Rios District. I’ve had the opportunity to meet wonderful, talented and spiritual women who help me become a better UM Women. It’s “you” who have helped me to grow. Being in this organization has provided me the opportunity to foster spiritual growth through their reading program and has helped me develop leadership skills. With God’s grace I want to welcome you and share my knowledge putting faith, hope and love in action. Peace and Grace to you.

MC for Social Action Anne Bradeen 330 Pinedale Avenue Sacramento, CA 95838 email@example.com 916-208-6694
Anne Bradeen I have been an active member of the Rio Linda Community UMC since 1975. I knew of UMW, but only attended occasional meetings. I became active after my husband and I retired, lived the RV life style for 8 years, and finally put roots back down again in our old home in Sacramento. I attended my first Conference Social Action Event about 6 years ago at which time Judy Church put out a call for more women interested in Social Action. I answered the call and was taken under Orene Dunzweiler’s wing and tutelage for Bridges District. I thank God for the call. I did (and do) want to be a part of change that is happening. I have been able to confirm and mature the actions I would like to be a part of by being among such dedicated, active, and spiritual women in the UMW!

The fellowship and ministry of the UMW, along with great friends, drew me into wanting to do more. So. late in 2019 I volunteered to help the Los Rios District with their communication needs.
