Invitations and Questions
What do you know about Christians in Egypt today? Have you heard of the World Day of Prayer? Come worship with church women in Albion as we join Christian women around earth to celebrate World Day of Prayer, March 7, 1 pm at New Hope Worship Center, 13600 28 Mile Road. Child care is provided.
Can you imagine what it would be like to meet Jesus face to face? Would you like to meet someone who has? What would you like to ask them? The Rev. Carolin Spragg, recently retired as pastor of Fremont UMC, will be sharing an interactive dramatic presentation of Jesus’ encounters with one or two Biblical women. Come to stretch your spiritual imagination and feed your soul and body.
The United Methodist Women of First UMC invite all women to join us for this annual Lenten Breakfast, Saturday, March 22, 2014, Fellowship Lounge, at 9 am. Call the church office or respond to your circle caller to reserve your place. Please request child care if needed. A freewill offering will be taken to cover the cost of the breakfast. Deadline: March 26.
Before I arrive in Louisville, KY, for UMW Assembly in late April, three baby blankets selected from our Piecemakers Quilting Group will have gone before me. We hope they will be chosen to be on display with thousands of others. All will be distributed to the nearly 100 mission institutions in the USA. The work of our hands is multiplied by our connections with UMW. Thank you to our faithful women who enjoy their quilting time each month and spread joy to injured and sick children in our area hospitals.
