United Methodist Women July 2018

June 25th, 2018 by Kali Lewis

Plans are being finalized for the annual United Methodist Women’s 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. Janet Helmbold is in charge of securing the speaker and the meal, being planned by Lynn LaRose and her crew, will feature pulled pork sandwiches – yumm! There will be no July UMW meeting so the picnic will be a welcome addition to summer activities. Come join us.​
​ We at Manistique FUMC are still feeling the loss of the passing of long-time member Darlene Pruess. In her memory, her portrait  has been hung in the church Fellowship Hall as a reminder of all the “fellowship” programs she initiated at our church. It has also been decided that a memorial gift from her family will be sent to Camp Michigamme to be used in the construction of a craft building as she was so fond of craft projects.​
​ Mark you calendar now and plan to attend the upcoming Pie Auction set for Sunday, August 26. The fund-raiser will take place following the worship service at the end of our Fellowship hour. This is sure to be a fun event and a tasty way to treat yourself to some of our cooks’ specialties.​
​ Looking ahead: The annual Marquette District UMW meeting/celebration will be held Tuesday, October 2, at Zeba UMC in L’Anse, MI. Those who have completed the Reading Program will be recognized at that time, so those of you who are taking part in the program are reminded to complete your goal soon and get your list to Mary Prater by early September. More information on the District Meeting and registration forms will be available soon.​
