FALL IS HERE !! AUTUMN BLESSINGS TO ALL !!
UMW met in September and a lovely discussion was held on our Personal Faith, our current selves and our memories and wishes of the past. We enjoyed the fruits of the fall season with a delicious apple crisp and a scrumptious pumpkin dessert.
We are looking forward to December and our last Meeting for 2018. It’s a Christmas Potluck on December 5th where we will finalize our 2019 schedule and put together cheer platters for Christmas giving. Yes, Christmas is coming very quickly it seems. Please save the date, we would love for you to join us!
Speaking of Christmas, our Creation Team has several covers/quilts available to purchase for gifts. We will have the racks out on Sundays in November and December if anyone wishes to purchase one. Please see Marilyn Brodt or Harriet Brun ANYTIME, if you are interested. ALSO: The Creation Team meets the Third Tuesday of every month here at the church to work on them. They welcome busy hands, so if you have a knack and wish to participate, please stop in.
A little fall folklore for you….
Winter will be cold and snowy if corn husks are thick and tight, apple skins are tough, and birds
Keep an eye on the weather on October 9. If it’s sunny, the following winter will be very cold. If it’s cloudy, winter will be milder.

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.
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!
