UMW Corner

UMW logoby Ruth Ann Ford Our United Methodist Women met on May 12th in the Sunrise Room and enjoyed delicious refreshments prepared by Hostess Dolores Stuhmer.

President Brenda Hanna led the business meeting and began by thanking all those who helped in any way with the March Soup & Sandwich lunch.  All donations went to Linda Crouse who will be going to China again this summer.  As of May 16th, Linda has all the money she needs for this mission trip.

The men received $150 in donations collected at the Easter breakfast.  We appreciate the men taking on this privilege that they do so well.

Thank you notes were read received from Foundation Dinners and McCurdy Schools.  (Are you remembering to bring your Campbell Soup labels to church that will go to these schools so they can get another much needed van?)

We had no treasurer's report since Treasurer Ann Arebalo was attending her granddaughter's graduation that was out of state.

The secretary's report was given and approved.

Our UMW Mission Sunday will be on July 31st.  Plans will be completed for that at our June meeting.

We discussed the possibility of inviting another UMW group to be our guests at our next Women & Girls Banquet and maybe including our District officers.

We voted to give $100 to go to the Annual Conference that is held in June.  Each church is asked to give an offering to go towards the Miracle offering.

Rhonda Miller gave an update on the reading program and led us in our prayer concerns which were many.  She gave us our new list of women in the congregation for us to remember in prayer until our next meeting when we'll be given a new list.  Are you remembering that all of our women are lifted up in prayer?

Our next meeting will be on June 9th in the usual place.  Terryann McCoy will be our hostess so we can look forward to enjoying her refreshments to begin our time together.  We'd love to see you there!
