UMW Corner

by Ruth Ann Ford, News Reporter

Our September meeting began with enjoying delicious refreshments prepared by Hostess Linda Wilson. President Brenda Hanna led us in reciting our pledge before secretary Terryann McCoy read the minutes of our August meeting.  Mission Sunday gave us an opportunity to hear about the ministry of Dan and Peggy Zimmerman serving with World Gospel Mission in the Circleville area witnessing to the Spanish people there.  $100 was given to them from our group.

 

Treasurer Ann Arebalo reported that our August offering was $222.40.  We voted to give $200 to UMCOR to go to Hurricane Relief.  Our balance is $1,032.94.

 

Plans were made for our annual Women & Girls Banquet to be held on October 19th at 6:30.  Rhonda Miller will have our program centered around a game show with prizes to be given.  Pre-paid reservations are $6 and $4 for those girls under age 12 and are to be given to Dana Lochard on October 8th or 15th either before or after the worship service.  We will also feed the men who do such a great job of serving us.

We appreciate those women who did a fantastic job of cleaning the kitchen on September 15th.  There was a lot of evidence that our kitchen is a popular meeting place for four-legged critters.  (We’re pretty sure that they come uninvited.)

 

The UMW Annual Meeting is Saturday, October 14th at Newark First UMC with registration beginning at 8:15 a.m.  The theme will be, Let Justice Roll Down Like a River.  Those who attend are asked to bring children’s books appropriate for children up to age 12.  New, medium-sized stuffed animals would be appreciated also.  There will be a purse auction again this year.  Items could be given to put in a purse.  The proceeds from the auction will go toward missions.
