Welcome back, winter visitors! We hope that if you have not yet attended one of our circles listed above, you will check out any of our three circles! It’s a great way to meet new people and make friends! If you attended our wonderful tea last spring, you’ve only seen a little of what we do!
Mission u was hosted by Lakeview on Fri. and Sat, Aug. 2, 3 – And what a gathering!
95+ women from throughout Desert Southwest Conference and one of our Jurisdictional leaders from Houston, Tx, gathered to worship, study and fellowship together. Throughout our focus groups and gatherings, we learned about the legacy of the work that United Methodist Women have done in the U.S. and around the world over the last 150 years. We learned about social issues and how WE have helped shape our country’s response to racial injustice, women’s rights and immigrant issues. We completed quilt squares, wrote letters of encouragement to women who live in Halley Center (a division of UMOM), we learned new songs, and we shared in communion. Suellen and Bluette and their cook team and helpers dedicated themselves to feeding us all for dinner on Fri., and breakfast and lunch on Sat (God bless you all for your hard work!). Glade and Jonathan helped set up the rooms and the AV equipment (thanks, guys!) and anything else we needed, and Dr. Priscilla was our pianist for both worship services (THANK you!). Pastor John led our closing communion service.
SARAH CIRCLE sets new format, new time and location! If you like to knit, sew, crochet or do other types of crafts, or if you just like to be inspired by those who do (I hope the Summer Arts in the Parish has inspired you!), come and join SARAH CIRCLE on 4th Tuesdays (Sept. 24th) in the lower level of Smoot Hall. There are rumors of pillowcase dresses, Christmas stockings and holiday crafts, and any number of other types of crafts. Bring whatever you are working on, or see what others are doing and join in. Bring ideas for new crafts to share! They will have sewing machines and other equipment available. Bring a lunch (drinks are furnished) for now.
