The Women’s Missionary Council of the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church has been in existence since 1918 and is celebrating its 101st year in ministry. The Council is a viable entity to share the good news and salvation through Jesus Christ, and implement the mission and unity of the Christian Church at home and abroad using defined processes and programs. The Helena B. Cobb Scholarship was named after the first Vice President of the Women’s Missionary Council, Helena B. Cobb, as a tribute to her service to the organization. For additional information about the Council, visit https://cmewmc.org.
Thank you for supporting the Women’s Missionary Council.
In the Service of the Lord,
Ms. Jacqueline I Scott, International President
