United Methodist Women:
Our organization of United Methodist Women have been quite active during 2018. January saw installation of officers and Special Mission Recognition of Pastor Eleanor and Mark and Lori and Tim Fuller for the year of 2017. In February, after a presentation by Pastor Eleanor regarding her recent trip to the Holy Land and her visit to Hope Secondary School, our unit contributed $500 for helping to further the education of children based on Christian values
In April, Bob Aho presented a program "The Story of the New Sanctuary Building" with UMW overseeing the potluck dinner. The spring Bake and Rummage sale took place in May with many of you baking and assisting which brought in $2230.87 and the fall Bake and Rummage sale grossed $2081.76. In September, we hosted the Fall District Meeting in our church. Each year at the Fall District meeting, a memorial service is held to remember those women who have passed away during the year, which is from September 1 to August 31. This year included Phoebe Hughes, Barbara Ives, Marlea Sherwood, Dorothy J. Robinson, Sandra K. Buchanan, Mary Longwell, and Carole Humphrey from our church.
We were able to purchase an appliance for the Children's Clothes Closet to disinfect used clothing. Each year, we assemble about 50 school Kit Bags for UMCOR as well as some Health Kits, Sewing Kits, and Flood Kits. Our church members are supportive in helping to supply items for these kits. We are generously supported by advertisers in the community for the Birthday/Anniversary Calendar project.
All of our money making projects go to support our mission work, such as contributions to the Thanksgiving Boxes, Kitty's Card Outreach, Casowasco, two local health care facilities, and the pledge we make each year to the District and projects already mentioned above. We do our mission outreach with the help of the whole church body. THANK YOU!
We would welcome any lady in the church to our monthly meeting held at noon the second Tuesday in the month of December and starting in 2019, the third Tuesday of the month. We each bring a bag lunch and dessert is provided. We have a program followed by a business meeting.
Donna McIntire, UMW President
