January brought a new lineup of officers for our Unit. President is still Ann Cornelius, Vice President is now Judy James, Treasure is now Kay Arbenz and Secretary is still Sally Henderson. Other officers are as follows:
Nomination Committee, Sue Coonce and Barbara Weaver; Honorary Vice President is Kristi Schneider; Spiritual Growth is Jackie Robertson; Membership is Loretta Sellers; Missions / Social Action for Esther Circle is Peggy Sheldon, and for Joy Circle is Carolyn Nicholson. And our two circles are led by Willie Garvin for Esther and Kay Arbenz for Joy.
We lost a long-time member in January, Alice Carwell. Thank you for those who gave in her memory. We will certainly do something in her honor.
March is a busy month for our UMW unit. On March 14th at 9:30 AM we will have our Unit Meeting. Unit meeting happen only 3 or 4 times a year and is a great way to get involved with so many women of the church. This month the Executive Officers are providing a breakfast. So, come and nourish your body and souls with nutritional and spiritual food. Then the next day is UMW Sunday, March 15th! Our guest speaker will be Stacey Ninness, president and CEO of NSO, Neighborhood Services Organization. This ministry was started in 1920 by United Methodist Women, and Ninness is intentional about remembering NSO’s Methodist roots.
The United Methodist Women have a wonderful Unit at this church. In that Unit are 2 Circles. The Joy Circle meets the 1st Thursday of the month at 6:00 pm in the Parlor. The Esther Circle meets on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 9:30 am in the Parlor. We invite you to come to either or both Circles. The upcoming rummages sale is a wonderful way to get to know the congregation. Stop by and help or just visit! The United Methodist Men meet in the Fellowship Hall at the same time as the Joy Circle. They provide a meal and usually a speaker. All are invited to both gatherings!
