United Methodist Women Christmas Project
The United Methodist Women will sponsor the Angel Tree 2020 Project for the children in the Methodist Foster Care Program. There are more children in the Methodist Foster Care then ever before, 125. By December, the Methodist Children's Home staff is expecting to have close to 135 children.

We have requested 30 Child Specific Angel Tree cards with a mix of children's gift items from wish list filled out by children in the foster care program.
As soon as we receive the cards, a Christmas tree with the cards will be displayed in the church office. You can visit the tree during the office's hours and on Sundays to select your child's card. All directions can be available at that time. Thank you for participating in this joy filled project.

United Methodist Women Reading Program Leads to Action
The Reading Program encourages ladies to think critically about current issues through books. It offers an excellent opportunity to deepen your spirituality and to broaden your understanding of mission work. For 150 years , United Methodist Women have been in mission that includes prayer, study and action. The Reading Program is a study opportunity that leads to action.

During 2019, our UMW had 11 women who read a total of 89 books. Congratulations, Ladies, you succeeded your goal of reading more than 65 books in 2019!
News update........MEN can join our Reading Program ! So the Reading Program is open to anyone who wishes to include the UMW Reading Program Books to their study.
