Greetings Fellow Sisters in Christ! I hope you are all staying cool and enjoying your summer. September is almost here and it is time for United Methodist Women to get busy again. Barbara Grode and I have been busy with our East District Officer meetings and duties and attending Mission U. Others of you have been busy fulfilling our mission to be in service to women, children and youth through our Under the Bridge Program, Joshua Tree Breakfasts, helping with Vacation Bible School and various other projects so we really have not taken the summer off. We have however, not all met in fellowship with one another which is also part of our Purpose. With that said I would like to invite all women who attend our church and those who don’t but you may invite, to attend our meeting on Saturday September 14th at 9:00am in Fellowship Hall. Martha Payne and I are busy planning a yummy breakfast for you and the Leadership Team is firming up plans for an informative program. I will announce the program in church closer to the meeting. I would also like to invite all of you to join Barbara and I in attending our East District United Methodist Women’s Celebration in Palm Springs on Saturday September 21st. Reverend Jane Voigts will be our guest speaker leading us in “Growing in Blessedness” and continuing our legacy. Since the meeting is so close, I hope some of you can attend and meet your fellow sisters from around our district. They are a great bunch of ladies. Blessings to all of you!
