We hope you all had a chance to partake in the delicious annual Salad Luncheon on Aug 30th.
Thank you to all who made salads and dishes. And a huge Thank you to the UMW Lay Committee for their organization and work.
Ladies of FUMC, please think about attending the UMW District Annual Gathering. Our church is hosting this year. Handouts and registration forms are available on the bulletin board near the Fellowship Hall and at services (handout). UMW ladies from around the district will be here for fellowship, to attend worship and workshops, to hear Rev. Wesley White talk on community, purchase books, etc. … there will be so much to do.
A mission is chosen for the day and it is our Food Pantry! So everyone from around the district will bring various items for the pantry. It is Saturday September 23rd from 9 AM to 3 PM. If you have any questions please call Kim 822-3296 and leave a message, I will get back to you. We will need a few ladies from our church to help greet and point out where things are in the am. Also, we are serving rolls and coffee upon arrival and a lunch that day, so we will need helpers for that too. I will be calling a few ladies, but if you know you are coming, please let me know if you are willing to help. Thanks!

Scheduled for the 3rd Tuesday of each month to work on Mission projects. Creation days are held in Fellowship Hall once a month. We spend the day working on quilts and other sewing projects. The finished projects will be used as gifts, Mission donations, or sold to support mission work. This event has been going well. We can always use more volunteer workers. Last year we gave away or sold 45 plus quilts. Remember: 3rd Tuesday of each month at 9:00. Come and join us! If you can tie a knot you can help us. So, if you like to sew and you would like to be apart of this wonderful monthly event, please feel free to stop in on the scheduled days.
Doris Schneider – Coordinator
ALL women of the church (members and friends) are a part of this new beginning Unit of the Fennimore United Methodist Women. We will continue our work at the Depot Exchange on the 2nd Monday each month. We start at 2:00 PM then food and fellowship at Friederick’s. We are looking forward to seeing many new faces at our scheduled meetings this year. Let’s all get together and make it a banner year for FUMW.
Thanks to all of you for your support!
