Please sign up in Fellowship Hall (or call 508-3584310 and leave a message) so we know how to plan.

We will also collect and dedicate our World Thank Offering, an offering given by individuals in gratitude for all the blessings they have enjoyed in the past year. Bring your filled blue World Thank Offering box or bring your offering in a sandwich baggie, or write a check to United Methodist Women.

All women are invited to join us from 1:00-3:00 pm and have a good time together. "Movie refreshments" will be available during the movie
