Holston Conference United Methodist Women

NEW! 2022 Theme and Logo Selected

Live in Peace…Build up One Another.


So let us do all we can to live in peace.
And let us work hard to build up one another.
Romans 14:19 (NIRV)

Congratulations! The 2022 contest winner is Morgan Wallace Gilbert, Clinch Mountain District. The design was inspired by the verse “So let us do all we can to live in peace. And let us work hard to build up one another.” Romans 14:19 (NIRV).

Morgan states, “I have brought to focus the two parts of this that are essential to the verse, the ideas of peace, and building up one another. The sprig of olive brings about the idea of the dove as a symbol for peace in the Noah’s Ark story. The circles symbolize the strength of our unity in togetherness and as the circles begin to link, they become stronger. The entire design is inspired by a light, art nouveau theme, often associated with beauty and femininity.”

We will recommit to our purpose, but also more.
