2017 UMW Meetings: May 20th, August 18th, Sept. 16th & November 18th
UMW Reading Program:
The UMW has a reading program which is open to all women of the church.
The Reading Program encourages members to think critically about current issues through an annual selection of books.
It offers an excellent opportunity to deepen your spirituality and broaden your understanding of our mission work. There are four different plans you may choose from.
If you choose Plan 1, you will choose one book from five different categories for a total of five books.
The categories are Education for Mission, Nurturing for the Community, Spiritual Growth, Social Action, and Leadership Development.
Plan 2 requires you to read ten books, Plan 3 requires 15 books, and Plan 4 requires 20 books.
When you have completed a book, fill out a form which is located in the office.
This year they are allowing you to choose from any of the lists since 2011.
The books are located on the UMW book cart which is located in the Parlor. You may start reading anytime!
If you have any questions, contact the church office.
UMW Upcoming Events for 2017:
Please mark your calendars for Wednesday, August 30 & Thursday, August 31.
Your rummage sale team will be Teresa Tibbe, Nancy Kidder & MariAnne Jones.
Sign-up sheets will be available after VBS! Items may be placed on the porch. We do ask that a 3 ft walkway is left in the center of the porch! If you can place your items in boxes it makes them much easier to stack. All leftovers from this sale will be donated to North Kent Connect.
If you have questions please contact Teresa at 616-799-0081, call or text. Email email@example.com or through the church’s fb group and fb message.
