Holiday Bazaar Reminders and a Word from Sally Vonner

A message from Sally Vonner, CEO of United Women in Faith

As part of a sisterhood of women committed to putting faith, hope, and love into action, I am reaching out with an important message. After much prayer and deep reflection, United Women in Faith is taking several steps to adjust to the organization’s current financial reality and remain faithful stewards of the resources entrusted to the organization.

We are enacting a series of cost-savings measures, supported by the board of directors who met October 13-14. United Women in Faith will eliminate [7 staff positions]. Please join us in prayer for our affected colleagues, whose good work helped make us the nurturing and impactful sisterhood we are today.

We will move our headquarters by the end of the year to the Church Center for the United Nations (CCUN), which we own. This change will mean we will have minimal office space and our staff will work almost fully remotely.

These measures will help us adapt to a changing church and world, but it was still a difficult and hard decision. As you wrap your mind around this information, please do not lose sight of our mission. United Women in Faith is devoted to uplifting women, children, and youth. I know that in time, like generations of United Women in Faith before us, who survived church disruptions, pandemics, wars, and other societal unrest, we, too, will see brighter days ahead. We will continue to put our love into action.

Yours in Christ, Sally Vonner, General Secretary and CEO. United Women in Faith
