The UMW is open to all women who are interested in Christian fellowship. The group has two rummage sales a year to raise money to support both global ministries and the local church. Other activities include planning a Women's Sunday once a year and sponsoring a family at Christmas. Meetings are held on Saturday mornings so that working women can attend and are welcome to bring children. A short program follows brunch. Come and get to know your neighbor!

 

UMW MEETING - January 20, 2018
Submitted by Thela Snow

The UMW met Saturday morning January 20 and covered the following items:

Sandy Allen reported on the refrigerator purchase; she researched Brand Names, JCP and Sears. Members voted to purchase the 20.5 Cu. Ft. refrigerator from Brand names – they will deliver it.

As a part of the UMW missions work, metal buckets will be out on Feb. 4 for donations for “souper bowl” Sunday. Soup will not be provided this year. The cash donations will go to the Cuba food bank. Thank you in advance for donations.

We had a discussion about the gold curtain behind the cross on the altar. Since the curtain hooks for put back it looks good, but it does need to be cleaned. Janet ontacted John Ash Cleaners. They could not give us a price or length of time to complete the cleaning, until they saw it. The curtain will be taken down a Sunday after the service and put back up when it’s completed.

Members had a discussion about Thela’s mission trip to Haiti in February, and voted to pay for a checked bag filled with 50 pounds fabric. She will be teaching sewing for 10 days. If anyone has any of the following items at home and know they will never get put to use and want to donate them to Haiti, please contact Thela: Extra fabric; (Cotton blends, broad cloth, flannel - no knits, stretch fabrics or fleece please), zippers, sewing scissors, thread, interfacing, velcro, ribbon, or buttons.

Members voted to cancel the February meeting. The next meeting will be held March 17th at 10 AM in Wesley Hall. All ladies are welcome.

We ended the meeting with a “dignity for girls” work session - sewing on items to be sent to Africa.

 

Dates to remember:

Next Meeting:
Saturday, March 17, 2018

All ladies are welcome

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

Food Pantry Collections

Submitted by Cindy Dutton

On Communion Sundays, the first Sunday of each month, the UMW will be collecting items for the food pantry. Please bring in non-perishable items to help support our local food pantry, located at the First Baptist Church.

We are so fortunate to have a food pantry in our community, and it is because of you that we do! Thanks for your continued support to this all important ministry.
