Shades of Gold
So many shades of gold…. Autumn
Another miracle we take for granted
Another expression of the artist’s vision
The blending of the autumn hues
with the setting sun
Thank you for autumn, Lord.

Happy Fall Everyone!
It was a gorgeous fall evening for the UMW Quarterly Meeting on September 25th. Apple Crisp, Cheese and Crackers and Snacks were served. Plans were made for the Annual Holiday Potluck on December 4th . A brief business meeting was held discussing yearly donations, and ended in a devotion and discussion.
HELP IS NEEDED!
The Creation Team — is looking for more helpers to join in. They meet the third Monday(1 PM) and Tuesday(9 AM) of the month here at the church, where they make and tie covers. These are not quilts, no intricate patterns, just blocks. No quilting skill are needed, we tie them with yarn. Easy!
Some covers are sold here and our money is given to different missions/charities. Also, we send some to Social Services during the holidays and we always have a stash of a few for those in dire need, such as, in the case of a fire or shelter need.
PLEASE consider helping a few hours a month to keep this mission going. Please contact Joann Schrader if you would like to join in.
Depot Exchange — Volunteers work on the second Monday of the month from either 9:30 – 11:30 or 2:00 – 4:00 . Please come and join in one of the UMW’s and FUMC’s favorite mission. Audrey is the contact person if you need info.
Keep the Date — Wednesday December 4th at 6:00 PM for our Annual Potluck dinner and
meeting. We assemble the Cheer Plates for members over a certain age and our Church Staff.

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!
