Mission Statement:  As a people of faith, we empower Wyoming’s faith communities to promote social and environmental justice through prayer, discernment, respectful dialogue, leadership, advocacy, service and study.

Membership is based on a commitment to come together with others, putting aside our differences, to advance our mission. Three teams work to implement the mission through education and advocacy.

 

2018 Winter Report and Appeal

Thanks to all of you who have helped us out over the past years. The WIN Board of Trustees hopes that you continue to include WIN among the many worthy organizations each of you support.

I hope this season of many holiday celebrations is going well for all of you. As an interfaith organization, the possible celebrations and commemorations some of us will be involved in could include: Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Boxing Day, Omisoka (the Japanese name for New Year’s Eve to New Year’s Day), Saint Nicholas Day, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, or Saint Kliment Ohridski’s Day, the Feast of our Lady of Guadalupe, Asarah b’Tevet, the ongoing events of Advent and Festivus.

At the 2017 Annual Meeting, WAC voted to become WIN. New Board members include representatives from the Jewish, Muslim, Unitarian Universalist and Native American faith communities. We have been actively and successfully reaching out to the Roman Catholic community, and there may be more groups out there interested in the Spiritual Life, Sacred Ground and Peace and Justice teams. This interfaith transition had been a mountain peak that WAC had been working on climbing for some years.

In 2018 the new Board and Exec Team:

  • Renamed our website to wyointerfaith.org and began the process of upgrading the website.
  • Continued to follow the legislative process.
  • Held a wonderful Board Retreat, reaching out to the great folks in Lander.
  • Had a very informative Annual Meeting in Gillette.

WIN Board Plans for 2019 include:

  • Continuing to monitor the legislature.
  • Ensuring that our website looks dynamic and is continuously kept current with the most recently scheduled events and newsletters.
  • Developing an “I want to be a member” page on the website.
  • Composing a realistic set of job descriptions for Executive Director, to be voted on at the next Annual Meeting.
  • Holding another Board retreat.
  • Having a wonderful Annual Meeting programmed by the Peace and Justice Team.

I hope to do a lot more traveling throughout the state of Wyoming during 2019 to meet up with clergy folks and see what good things have been done in their neighborhood and what their needs might be.

The Board of Trustees, The Executive Team and I look forward to leading WIN onto the next heights with your financial help.
