On July 29, 2017, the Executive Board of the Ohio Mennonite Women (OMW) made the difficult decision to dissolve the organization of the Ohio Mennonite Women. The Executive Board asks all congregations to include the following announcement of this decision in their church bulletins on Aug. 20:
Dear Women of Ohio,
Over the years, Ohio Mennonite Women (OMW) has significantly enriched the lives of many women through fellowship and service, but after much prayer and discernment, it is with sadness that the OMW Executive Board announces the decision to dissolve the organization of the Ohio Mennonite Women. Ongoing contributions can be made directly to missionaries and agencies. For more information, see the Ohio Conference website (http://bit.ly/OhioMennoniteWomen) and the OMW Facebook page. If you have questions, please contact Co-Chair Willie Stoltzfus at firstname.lastname@example.org and/or Roxanne Kauffman at email@example.com.
Thank you for your support. Please join us for a Time of Celebration at the upcoming Women’s Retreat* at Camp Luz Sept. 15-17, 2017.
