Lenten Devotional: I am so excited about our Lenten Devotional. We are asking our Circle members, U.M.W. members, as well as men and women of our Faith U.M.C. to help us create a 30-Day Lenten Devotional to be available to our entire congregation. Here's what you need to do. There is a list of Scriptures to choose for your contribution. It will be on a clipboard outside room 4 or see a U.M.W. member following a Saturday or Sunday service. The devotional will begin on Ash Wednesday, February 26th.
Write your name next to the scripture you choose and grab an instruction sheet.
Write your response (reaction, reflection, poem or picture, etc.).
Type it following the guidelines on the sheet and send via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Put "Lenten Devotional" in the subject line. Those who cannot send via email can drop a typed copy off at the office to be put in Donna Petersen's mailbox.
Send or deliver copies by FEBRUARY 12th or sooner if possible. Looking so forward to being blessed during Lent as we share our thoughts and faith with one another.
Thank Bank is back. Since we missed January it seemed a good idea to tap into Leap Day (February 29th) to make up for January.
*February thank Bank - Number of rooms in your house = $.10 each.
*Leap Day Special - 2/29 - Number of TVs in your house = $.25.
*March - Bottle of fingernail polish = $.15 each.
Ash Wednesday, February 26th

The United Methodist Women share God’s love and Jesus’s message. The many missions of United Methodist Women help support, educate and nurture women and children all around the world. Here at Faith, we participate in these ministries physically and financially: Both the large group (UMW local unit) and the individual circles make items and participate in activities that help women and children.
We donate to local women's organizations, make cheer baskets for those unable to attend church regularly, send birthday cards to all women of the church (e-cards for those who have e-mail), help prepare for VBS, etc. Our individual circles also do service projects. Mary and Rachel Circle made “cuddlies” for premature babies at Christ Hospital. Some have gone to and or supported Feed My Starving Children, My Joyful Heart, collected and cut plastic bags to make
homeless mats. Others have crocheted those bags into mats, baked for bake sales, and donated money to go
to the national UMW organization. Consider joining us for these activities. Watch the bulletin board outside room 4 for updated information.
UMW has a number of great activities on tap. Hope you can join us for any and all you are interested in. There are no dues, no need to petition membership. You don’t even have to like to work in the kitchen. You simply have to like networking with a bunch of ladies working for mission with our time, talents, love and support.
