United Methodist Women

All women are invited to join us for our "Holiday Spirit" program on Saturday afternoon, December 15, at 2:00 pm. in the CUMC Fellowship Hall. Highlights of our Christmas program will include decorating gift bags to hold homemade bread loaves for the kick-off of the up-coming "Spread the Bread” program, packing cookies for our homebound and nursing home friends (please bring 2 dozen to share), and voting our slate of officers, distribution of special money gifts to mission projects, and our 2019 budget. Wear your holiday garb and come enjoy this season with friends. See you then!

This year's "Winter Woods” Fair is a recent memory. What a special fair, as always! It was indeed a time of working together, fellowship, seeing old friends, making new ones, enjoying beautiful decorations and tables filled with wonderful gifts, crafts, baked items, and much more…..

During the next three weeks, the "Gift Shop" on the stage in Fellowship Hall at CUMC will be open for anyone who is looking for wonderful handcrafted items and decorations for holiday giving. Money for items bought can be given to Sara in the church office during the morning until 12:15 pm. or placed in the green envelope on the gift table. Checks should be written to United Methodist Women.

Thank you to all of you who gave time and effort to making our "Winter Woods" Fair a success.

You met in workshops for weeks be-fore the event, created Christmas decorations and flower arrangements with spe-cial touches, made pies until you were exhausted, baked cookies and pies and breads "at all hours", donated items to various "shops", prepared foods for 'good eating' at the luncheon, spent hours pricing, helped with the setting up, selling, and the tearing down. You are too many to count and name! So THANK YOU, THANK YOU from the fullness of our hearts. You are wonderful folks!
