United Methodist Women across the country sponsor a reading program to generate thought and discussion as well as the pleasure of reading. Titles are suggested by readers for the areas of Education for Mission, Leadership Development, Nurturing for Community, Social Action and Spiritual Growth. Readers may choose from book lists 2016-2020.
A complete listing of the books and program details can be found online at www.unitedmethodistwomen.org/reading. Books are available to sign out from the church office.
During this time of Coronavirus, the new books for this year have been circulating among readers. You are invited to borrow them by calling Kay Waugh or the church office at 434-1168.
Kay's favorite new book is "A Cage Without Bars" by Anne Dublin. It's a quick read that is hard to put down! "God Unbound" contains Wisdom from Galations for the Anxious Church, by Elaine Heath. Current issues of Response magazine are available as well.
Friends of Patricia members are sewing at home at this time.
We continue to make reusable sanitary pads for girls and women in Africa, we have branched out to include making items of many kinds for those in need, here at home and overseas.
This fun group is not just SUMC members, so please spread the word and come join us. Everyone is welcome. Since our projects are so varied, many tasks have nothing to do with a sewing machine! Here is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy friendship and contribute to the needs of others!
We also will gratefully accept monetary and material support, to keep this mission going. If you have materials that might be useful, please call the office (920) 434-1168 for further information.
Hygiene Kits are being collected and assembled for homeless men and women. Gently used handbags and men's carry on size bags are needed along with items to fill them. A full list of these items can be found in the 'shopping lists' by the collection bins. Judy Schroeder, is the contact person if you have items for this project. Big thanks!
Hats and Mittens continue to be donated in many places of need in our area and beyond. Thanks for donations of fleece, yarn, and purchases of items to fund the project.
