United Methodist Women

UMW logo

The 2015 Conference Theme Logo Design was created by Debbie Watson of Christ United Methodist Church, Knoxville, TN (Knoxville District).  Debbie’s explanation of the logo: This design represents Jesus as the cross and his repeated question to Peter as the heart on the cross. Jesus’ directive to Peter and to us all “Feed My Lambs” is at the foot of the cross where all lambs gather.
