A Call to Prayer and Self-Denial —
We Rise: Meeting God’s Call to Transform
Communities: 2020 A Call to Prayer and Self-Denial

This annual observance gives local and district units a chance to study and reflect on a particular theme each year and to designate funds for ministries related to the theme for the year.

We have put this mission information and giving envelopes on the bulletin board.  Please check out the UMW website for more information.

Help! Creation Team – our mission of sewing and tying covers for sale and for giving to Social
Services to those in need is now in need itself. Please consider using your talents to help.  No fancy quilting, just basic sewing and for those that do not sew, just an extra hand to help out, is badly needed.  The team usually meets just once a month.  It’s a fellowship of ladies that serve with love, please call if you wish to help out.   We’d love to see new faces! Please call Kim Cathman 822-3196.

Date Change! Our next Quarterly Meeting is set for TUESDAY MARCH 24TH AT 6:30 PM AT THE CHURCH.  This change is due to Lent.   Come and join in the fellowship!

Thursday, March 19 brings the March Equinox marking the beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere. On this day, the Sun stands directly over Earth’s equator.

March’s Full Moon, often called the full Worm Moon, reaches peak fullness at 1:48 P.M. EDT on Monday, March 9.

Why a Worm Moon?… at this time of the year, the ground begins to soften enough for earthworm casts to reappear, inviting robins and other birds to feed—a true sign of spring.

So there is hope, Spring is coming!  Stay Strong!

May your troubles be less,

And your blessings be more.

And nothing but happiness,

comes through your door.  

God’s Blessing to all!

Creation Days

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.

Please Note

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!
