September was a busy month for the UMW. . . .
We hosted the District Annual Gathering on the 23rd. Fifty plus leaders from across the district were very thankful for such a lovely place to hold the conference.
It reminded us how proud we are of our Church building and our Church Family who make it possible and take care of it. A special thanks to Paul for all his hard work getting all the different media needs of the officers in place. He worked VERY VERY hard! No one could have done a better job! And to the ladies who prepared the meal, KUDOS! There were so many compliments made about the homemade soup, sandwiches and bars. Thank you to all who cooked and baked such delicious treats. It was greatly appreciated by many!
On the 24th, UMW Sunday, we supported the services by providing ushers, greeters and liturgists and served coffee hour.
On the 27th of September, our Quarterly meeting was held and we planned our December Potluck (Wednesday December 6th) and Cheer Baskets for Christmas (yes that is approaching faster than we think).
Hopefully it has cooled down a bit by the time you read this and that you all have a blessed fall.

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.
