UMW – June 2018

June 6th, 2018 by Kali Lewis

Summer is finally here and it’s time for parties and picnics. The highlight of the summer, as far as the United Methodist Women goes, is our annual summer picnic. This year the theme will be a Hawaiian luau; so shake out your favorite muumuu, put on your leis and plan to attend. The event will be Tuesday, August 7, at noon at the church. Mark the date now on your calendars. More information to follow so watch the church bulletin and next month’s newsletter.​
The next local UMW General Meeting will be June 5 at 1 PM in our church Fellowship Hall.  United Methodist Women’s meetings are open to all interested. Come join us. Note: there will be no meeting in July.​​
The monthly Hymn Sing at the Schoolcraft Medical Facility will be Monday, June 4, at 10 AM. Our members lead the residents in singing familiar hymns and present a brief meditation and program.  The Hymn Sing is open to newcomers. Come, join us. You’ll be glad you did.​
​A new offering in the UMW library is On Pluto, by Greg O’Brien. The author, who is in the early stages of Alzheimer’s. gives an in-depth account of his daily struggles as he tries to cope with the debilitating disease. This book holds no punches for the reader as O’Brien at times gives humorous mistakes as well as frightening encounters brought on by the mind twisting illness. This book is in the Nurturing for Community category.​

There is still time to participate in the UMW Reading Program. See Mary Prater for details and check out the many interesting books on the church library shelves.​
