Fennimore UMW News:

Welcome June!

May your heart and mind be open enough to receive the Blessings of a New Month!

Delight yourself in the LORD, and He will give you the desires of your heart.  Psalm 37:4

June was most likely named for the Roman goddess Juno, patroness of marriage and the well-being of women.

June’s full Moon, the full Strawberry Moon, occurs on Tuesday, June 14. It reaches peak illumination at 7:52 A.M. (EDT) that morning.

This full Moon is also the first super moon of 2022.

Our next meeting – June 22nd at 6:30 PM at Church

Creation Team – We’ve had a couple of dedicated ladies who have pieced some cover tops for us to tie.  Thank you to those ladies for their hard work and to the ladies that helped to tie them up. We tied four in May. Check out our rack in the fellowship hall for new ones that we have added!

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!
