Who are Marysville’s United Methodist Women and what can be said about them? The “who” is easy, we are every woman involved in this church’s congregation.
What can be said is that during this time of staying at home and dealing with this critical health crisis together, we are encouraging each other with phone calls, texts, emails and cards, all the while continuing with prayer. We miss our treasured time together, the UMW meetings, the work involved in the Rummage Sale, planning for the Annual Salad Luncheon and most of all the Sundays spent together in worship. Many have asked themselves “What else can I do” and some have answered by making masks for themselves and others, continuing to volunteer at food banks or other means of outreach and looking into their hearts to increase monetary giving to the church.
And so, as always, what can be said about United Methodist Women is that we are living up to the reputation of being the caring, giving, worshiping unit of followers of Christ that we strive to be. A pledge that is often used is “With God’s help I will”.
Thanks to Pastor Glen and his crew for giving us a feeling of togetherness by enabling us to watch sermons online at this important time. There has been change and uncertainty and a very different Easter, but one to remember, and no matter what is going on in our lives or on this planet, the meaning of Easter does not change and our God does not change.
Thought for the Day: So don’t be anxious about tomorrow, God will take care of your tomorrows too. Matthew 6:34
