UNITED METHODIST WOMEN

 

     It is a new year for the United Methodist Women. If you have any changes in your address or phone # for our new yearbook, please notify …Betty at the church office ASAP. Going to print 8/3

    Now is also a good time to join—if you are not a member already. You can choose to be in the Morning Elizabeth Circle which meets at 9:30 AM or the Afternoon Sarah Circle that meets at 1:30 PM. Both meet in the Fireside Room the 4th Wednesday of each month. Their next meetings will be Aug. 26th.  

     On Aug. 12th the Morning Elizabeth Circle will serve a Salad Lunch with Birthday Cake for dessert. This is the UMW Birthday Party and ALL WOMEN of the church are invited. Tables will be decorated in the 4 seasons and you can sit with the people who have a Birthday when you do. There will be a free-will offering. Bring guests. We will sing Happy Birthday to everybody! We will also install the officers and committee chairpersons for the new year.

   The United Methodist Women is a Community of women whose purpose is to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative supportive fellowship; and to expand concepts of Mission.   We invite any women interested to join this group of caring women who help serve others.

   RIDE MINISTRY

We currently have 5-6 members in our congregation who are needing rides to the 8:30 Sunday Worship Service. We are in need of a COORDINATOR to be the organizer between the driver and the riders each Sunday. We also need DRIVERS. Please prayerfully consider this ministry. Let Betty know if you are able to do this.
