United Methodist Women

All women of the church are welcome to participate in any of our activities!

September Schedule:

Sept. 6                   Executive Board                    4pm                                Work Room

Sept. 27                 Circle                                 4pm                               Conference Room

Sept. 30                 Pasty Sale                              8am—3pm                       Kitchen & Work Room

We’ve had several gatherings to cut shoe pieces for the Sole Hope project.  We shipped about $18,000 worth of coupons August 14.  We had gatherings to clean, sort, and rearrange the kitchen to make room for our new Pampered Chef cookware.  We gathered on August 23 to bake cookies for our at-home members.

We’d welcome volunteers to help with the pasty sale.  There are a variety of jobs both standing and sitting.  You don’t have to commit to a certain time.  Come when you can and stay as long as you’d like.  It would be good to have some people come later (like 9:30 or 10:00) to relieve the early crew. Contact Alice Schellenberger 356-2387 or 79alicejms93@gmail.com.

 

Pasty Sales

We have pasty sales three times a year to raise money for our district pledge for global mission as well as a variety of other local, national and international missing giving (usually September, March/April, and January). We always welcome help in preparing and baking them. There are a variety of jobs and you can come when you’re able and stay as long as you like.

 

New Circle

New Circle meets the 3rd Wednesday at 4pm in the conference room. Our main focus is study. We completed “Jesus and Courageous Women” and most of the study on Ruth from the “Uppity Women of the Bible” series.
