Ubuntu Day of Service at Assembly 2014

More than 600 United Methodist Women members and friends got acquainted with neighbors in Louisville, Ky., during the pre-Assembly Ubuntu Day of Service, April 24. 

On Thursday, April 24, United Methodist Women members went out into the Louisville community for a day of service and mutuality in mission. At almost 40 sites throughout the Louisille area, including two in Indiana, Ubuntu participants gardened, sorted, sered, landscaped, cleaned, painted and organized, and, most important, they learned about the local community.
